Abstract

In most of the accidents occurring in remote areas information about their occurrence does not reach the emergency services on time. This can lead to fatalities or severe mental trauma to the accident victim till they are attended. In this paper development of real time collision detection and fleet management system is explained. The system has been developed adhering to the Software Engineering framework of systematic analysis, design, implementation, testing and modification. On the hardware front, an accelerometer has been used as a crash or rollover detector of the vehicle during and after a crash. With signals from an accelerometer, a severe collision is recognized and the vibration sensor will send a signal to microcontroller which in turn will activate GPS-GSM module. GPS module will send the coordinates that it receives from the satellite on a real time basis of the vehicle via GSM module to the website, where the operator can view the locations of the accident and send help appropriately. The entire system is simulated to understand its effectiveness in handling collision detection.
