In this paper, we are implementing an Intelligent Alarm Clock using skin detection approach and YCbCr color space model. This novel application is designed by keeping in mind the busy schedule and fast paced life of people living in this era. Focusing on the data and reports provided by various health organization, total time which is vital for comfortable sleep and peace of mind in an average adult is six or more than six hours on daily basis [1]. In the current scenario of hectic schedule of working in society, spare time of six hours still sound pretty compromising but, in reality, though, it is leading towards chronicle sleep deficiency. Deriving the inspiration from various research references, this alarm clock works on sleeping pattern of a person using Digital Image Processing. This work can be of great help for people suffering from sleeping disorders and hypersomnia. It is implemented using MATLAB. The tool used includes webcam, Image Processing Toolkit, and Image Acquisition Toolbox available in MATLAB. © Springer International Publishing AG 2018.
