the largest cause of unnatural deaths in the world today (apart from diseases) is road accidents. With increase in population and thus in the number of vehicles, accidents are only going to increase. Most of these deaths are due to delay in medical attention to the injured. The major cause of this delay is lack of intimation or delayed intimation of the accident to emergency medical response authorities. This can be addressed by the system proposed. This system uses an accelerometer, GSM modem

The system also incorporates a "panic switch" which when depressed will send a text message for help to stored numbers. This facility provides assistance in the case of some chronic medical condition like heart attack or robberies that are increasing on highways.
