Automotive electronics plays a significant role in the automobile industry and provides luxurious features and more importantly addresses the safety and security concerns. The work presented in this paper aims at providing a cost effective solution to the design and development of an event data recorder which has been basically adopted from the aviation sector considering the need and the correlated benefits. The paper presents an integrated design of the black box with the basic features of the data recorder which could be very useful for domestic vehicles and at the same time it also hosts several additional features that could assist in mitigating the number of accidents, or at bare minimum, will serve as an analysis tool to prevent future accidents by analyzing the previous accidents. The black box also provides automatic accident notification system which helps in informing the nearest hospital and the traffic authority by providing not only the coordinates of the accident but also the exact physical address for immediate medical attention which can save numerous lives every day.
