Microcontroller Based Accident Detection System
International Journal for Research in Applied Science and Engineering Technology
The always advancing technology has made human beings day to day lives easier. Since every coin has two sides similarly technology has its benefits as well as demerits. Transportation has great role in human life. Numbers of vehicles are increasing day by day. Development in the field of transportation makes our travelling difficulties much easy. But it can cause disaster to us and even can kill us in the form of accidents. Thus accident detection system has gained major attention in human
... ntion in human lives. This system uses GPS modem and GSM module. When accident occurs, GPS identify the location of vehicle and sends the message via GSM to the predefined user mobile number. Message contains the latitude and longitude of the location. Numbers of accidents are more and large number of people is losing their lives due to accidents. The poor emergency facilities available in some of the countries just to add this problem. These accidents are creating lots of traffic problem. This work will provide an optimum solution to this. With signals from accelerometer, a severe accident can be recognized. According to this work, when a vehicle meets with an accident immediately, vibration sensor will detect the signals and sends the alert message through the GSM modem including the location to the predefined mobile number or to control room. So the police can immediately trace the location through the GPS modem, after receiving information. Then after confirming the location necessary action will be taken.
