1. Continuously increased risk to the life caused by growing number of cars, dynamic development of the automotive industry and ubiquitous stress of contemporary life.
2. The human as the weakest link in a complex system: driver - vehicle - road.
3. Driver's fitness examination.
4. The usual driving standards, in general, based on statistical assumptions that determine traffic safety, which does not take into account the personal attributes and the current psychomotor condition of the driver.
5. Driving parameters recording units for driving style analysis.
6. Driving style analysis - behaviour individualisation.

The monitoring of driving parameters may provide information about the driver psychomotor efficiency. Biomedical research, in particular, measurements of eye closure and cardiovascular efficiency, complement the proposed system with necessary information about the current physical and emotional state of the driver. It allows to define the right moment for "early warning".
