The objective of this process is to develop a platform which is installed in an ambulance that can maintain its position perpendicular to gravitational force, irrespective of the position of the ambulance using servo motors which are placed perpendicular to each other. In this prototype, Arduino Mega 2560 Rev3 microcontroller is used to process the input from MPU-6050 inertial measurement unit. The code in Arduino 2560 Mega controller Rev3 analysis the input data, and when the C code receives the input from MPU and analyzes the angle and gives an output to the MG995 servo motor, it receives the signals and moves to the corresponding coordinates, so the movement of the vehicle will be nullified, for example, if the vehicle tilts 20 degrees with respect to x-axis, the servo motor moves −20 degrees with respect to x-axis.
