The rapid growth of technology and infrastructure has made our lives easier. The advent of technology has also increased the traffic hazards and the road accidents take place frequently, which causes huge loss of life and property because of the poor emergency facilities. Even with so many modern devices present in the field of vehicle design, road lane design and heavy traffic control accidents do occur at a large scale. Accident threatens human lives more and mainly road accident is common today. During accident many people lose their life because medical services and family member not getting accidental information on time. Any kind of accident detected is automatically sent as an alert to the required destination. Accident detection device installed in a vehicles when meets with an accident will send SMS/ messages to the pre-install numbers of the drivers family members, police station, ambulance and nearest hospital.
This embedded system is useful for tracking and retrieving the exact position of any vehicle, which has met with an accident by using Global Positioning System (GPS) and sensors. Transportation has great importance in our daily life and its development has made many of our chores much easy. IOT based vehicle accident detection system using GPS has gained attention. When accident occurs, this system sends short message to mobile number via GSM. Message will give longitude and latitude values. From these values location of accident can be determined. Here comes car safe project which can detect location of a car, and if there is any accident occur it can communicate automatically to the nearest police station, hospital and owner to reduce instant loss or damage.
