Emergencies such as accidents require immediate medical attention where patients need to be transported from the place of incident to hospital. In such situations, emergency systems are crucial in saving precious lives. The importance of taking a patient to hospital can be judged by the fact that if the arrival of an ambulance is delayed due to any problem, it can worsen the patient medical state and even cause death. The delays can occur due to time consumed for dialing emergency numbers and carrying out conversation for guiding the address to the place of incident to the ambulance dispatch service provider representative. The immense need of automation of ambulance dispatch system is necessary for solving this problem. This research work provides a comprehensive system that tackles this problem of manual ambulance dispatching by replacing it with Automatic Ambulance Dispatch System AADS. AADS comprises of android based application where the user (victim or the caretaker of the victim) have to press a simple “help” button on the AADS android application to signal and buzz any ambulance near the place of incident along with the victim’s geographical location just on one click. The objective of this research is to minimize the time consumed for the arrival of ambulance through automation.
