    Driving is a complex task that involves interacting adequately with the vehicle and the environmental changes simultaneously. Therefore, drivers' health is an essential factor in determining performance outcomes and enhancing road safety. It is a known reality that drivers with sudden health complications are most likely to be involved in road accidents and suffer several injuries. Apart from that, drunk driving is another aspect of a significant public health issue, where drivers under the influence of alcohol show an evident vision loss and vehicle control. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing but devices (things) that connect through the Internet. IoT is a trendsetting advancement in which all sensor data is collected in the cloud. An active monitoring tool is developed to record the driver's heart rate and measure the driver's alcohol level. If any of the readings reach above the expected value, an alert is sent to the emergency contact.
