Automatic Vehicle Accident Detection And
Messaging System Using GPS and GSM
Modems
Sri Krishna Chaitanya Varma, Poornesh, Tarun Varma, Harsha
Abstract —The aim of our work is to find the vehicle accident location by means of sending a message using a system which is placed inside of vehicle system. The main purpose is to provide security to the vehicle in very reasonable cost. So in this work we are using the basic microcontroller AT89C52 for cost effective and also for easy understanding. Here we used assembly programming for better accuracy and GPS and GSM modules which helps to trace the vehicle anywhere on the globe. The exact location of the vehicle is sent to our remote devices (mobile phones) using GSM modem.
Index Terms— GPS (Global Positioning System); GSM (Global Service for Mobile Applications); Microcontroller.

1 INTRODUCTION

Road accidents constitute the major part of the accident deaths 2 WORKING PRINCIPLE all over the world. According to the Insurance Institute for
Highway Safety (IIHS), new cars and its high-tech safety features have helped to lessen auto related deaths over the past 12 years.
Though it credits technology for lessening auto accidents, yet the
IIHS cannot help accusing bad driving behaviours like drunken driving, speeding and not using seatbelts for still causing major traffic deaths. Automatic vehicle accident detection and messaging system is an embedded intelligence implanted into the automobile.

Our paper describes about the AUTOMATIC VEHICLE ACCIDENT DETECTION AND MESSAGING SYSTEM using GPS and GSM technologies. We are using AT89C52 microcontroller in our project. When the system is switched on, LED will be ON indicating that power is supplied to the circuit. When the IR sensors that we are using in our project sense any obstacle, they send interrupt to

    Driving a car may not seem as dangerous as it is due to it being a daily routine, but in truth everyday people risk lives by letting themselves get distracted. On average in the U.S. alone there over 6 million car accidents per year of which over 1060 accidents per day involve a distracted party. The causes of these distracted drivers are caused by anything for the surroundings of the vehicle, the components inside, and the condemned cell phone usage. Cars and trucks all have their downsides, nevertheless manufacturers have taken a new approach to seek higher standards of safety. The controversy lies in the car maker's decision to connect the world of driving with new technologies to simplify the driving experience, but instead clouds individual’s…

    The most basic function in all fleet management systems, is the vehicle tracking component. This component is usually GPS based, but sometimes it can be based on a Cellular triangulation platform. Once vehicle location, direction and speed are determined from the GPS components, additional tracking capabilities transmit this information to a Fleet Management software application. Methods for data transmission include both terrestrial and satellite. Satellite tracking communications, while more expensive, are critical if vehicle tracking is to work in remote environments without interruption.…

    The development of collision avoidance systems is motivated by their potential for increased vehicle safety. Half of the more than 1.5 million rear-end crashes that occurred in 1994 could have been prevented by collision avoidance systems .Collision avoidance systems can react to situations that humans cannot or do not, due to driver error. Therefore, they are able to reduce the severity of accidents. Figure 1 below indicates that about 45 percent of the crashes that occur are caused by human errors. Human errors that cause crashes include failure to keep in proper lane, failure to yield right of way, inattentive, failure to obey traffic control devices, operating vehicle in negligent manner, drowsy…

    In transmitter section we are using H-Bridge, motors, vibration sensor, microcontroller, RF transmitter with RF encoder. In receiver section we are using RF receiver with decoder, microcontroller, LCD. How the identification will done is when the vehicle is moving, whenever the vehicle met an accident the vibration sensor which is attached to the vehicle, senses the vibrations and send this signal to the micro controller. According to the program controller takes appropriate decision that stops the vehicle immediately and at the same time the message i.e., vehicle met an accident will transfer from controller to the RF transmitter via RF encoder. From that it is received by the RF receiver and it is passed to the controller at the receiver section via RF decoder. According to the received information, corresponding message will display on LCD.…
