The level of stress for drivers will have a greater impact while driving. Driver stress may affect driver performance and creates many accidents. Stress is something we cannot able to physically see and identify. At present, only current stress level estimation is focused. Also, monitoring of the present level is established. We have proposed real data collection; IoT based sharing and data analytics. To obtain driver stress we have used heartbeat sensor and eye blink sensor to predict the stress level and drowsiness of the driver during driving. The real time data are processed from Net beans as an excel file to R programming studio for data analysis. In R programming clustering and classification are processed for normal or abnormal conditions of the driver.
