This paper describes the method to estimate drivers' arousal level by using the information on drivers' operation behavior, such as steering work or accelerating work, etc. By measuring drivers' physiological factors such as brain waves, R-R intervals and other during monotonous driving, the most suitable factor was selected to evaluate the driver's arousal level. After confirming the correlation between the factor and drivers' operation behavior, the driver's arousal level was estimated by the MTS (Mahalanobis-Taguchi System) which is one of Taguchi methods.
