GPS and GSM for Accident Spot Identification

ABSTRACT:

The main intention of this project is to find the accident spot at any place and intimating it to

ambulance through the gps and gsm networks. Now-a-days, it became very difficult to know

that an accident occurred and to locate the position where it has happened. It’s very difficult for

the lives of victims until anyone noticed and informed it to the ambulance or to any hospital

and if it occurs in remote areas there will be no hope to survive. To overcome these, gps and

gsm technologies are used. The gps based vehicle accident identification module contains a

vibrating sensor and a gps modem connected to the microcontroller. When an accident occurs

,the vibration sensor gives the signal to the microcontroller, which sends the information to the

control room through gsm network.

Embedded System
Embedded systems are electronic devices that incorporate microprocessors with in their implementations. Embedded systems designers usually have a significant grasp of hardware technologies. They use specific programming languages and software to develop embedded systems and manipulate the equipment. Embedded systems often use a (relatively) slow processor and small memory size to minimize costs. An embedded system is a special-purpose system in which the computer is completely encapsulated by or dedicated to the device or system it controls. Unlike a general-purpose computer, such as a personal computer, an embedded system performs one or a few pre-defined tasks, usually with very specific requirements. Since the system is dedicated to specific tasks, design engineers can optimize it, reducing the...
