Abstract

Vehicular Accident Detection and Prevention using Internet of Things is developed in order to detect and prevent vehicular accidents. The fulminant traffic holdup particularly in quick scrolling roads and highways characterized by a scarce visibility is one amongst the foremost causes of accidents among motorized vehicles. It can be caused by other accidents, work-in-progress on roads and so on. RF sensors being directly installed in private and/or public transportation and other volunteer vehicles. When the vehicle is in idle state the transmitter sends radio frequency signals to the vehicle which is 100 meter away from the idle vehicle, informing that the vehicle ahead is idle in state. In addition to this, if an accident occurs the device asks the driver to confirm the accident. If the driver confirms the accident, the device will connect and transmit the signal to the local police station or the local ambulance. The wait time is set to 5 minutes. If the wait time value is Zero then the device automatically sends the message and call to the local police station or the ambulance.
