Background/Objectives: Sensors implementation in automobiles has become a prime factor in the growth of the automobile industry. The quality of an Automobile is determined by the number of sensors integrated and also the sensitivity of the sensors to deliver the nominal conditions of the surroundings of the automobile. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The impact of sensors in today’s automobile industry varies in multiple numbers of applications starting from the control of the automobile till the safety of the passengers in the automobile. Tilt sensor and Accelerometer function are utilized to analyze the car condition during a crash incident, where the change in tilt condition of the car or the accelerometer value can trigger a camera to capture the image and transmit the image to an authority of preference through mail client. Findings: The impact of sensors in today’s automobile industry varies in multiple numbers of applications starting from the control of the automobile till the safety of the passengers in the automobile. These results are obtained by the integration of numerous sensors and the combined data values obtained from them for calculating the complexity of the situation. The project involves the combination of sensor value details and to be able to monitor the values from a remote location by feeding them into a platform which utilizes the cloud storage. A web server is also designed where the sensor values are saved in the form of log files with time stamp for future reference. Conclusion/Improvements: The overall system is employed with the help of a Beagle Bone Black microcontroller which is an effective replacement of a computer performing all the desired functions as such as a computer does towards the understanding of the system development.
