Part of the Internet of Things book series (ITTCC)


In recent times, frequencies of accidents have increased considerably. This is because of an increase in the number of vehicles, carelessness of drivers, and over speeding. Over speeding is the main reason for increase in the number of accidents. In this work, the primary concern is to decrease the impact of collision, and after that communicating with the nearby hospital for providing necessary support to the victims. According to data provided by the Ministry of National Highway, most of the deaths occurred because of not getting help in crucial times or not getting an ambulance service in time. Our main aim is to communicate with the nearest hospital through GPS and help the victims. Our work is divided into two main parts. One is sensing and communication part. Other is the braking part which has three steps. When the distance of the vehicle from the obstacle is more than 30 m then the system is disabled. If the distance becomes less than 30 m then a warning is generated by the system for the driver to apply brakes. If the distance is further reduced and becomes less than 4 m understanding that the driver has lost control over the vehicle, control is fully transferred to the braking system and plugging braking is used to stop the vehicle instantly to reduce the impact of a possible collision.
