Vehicle Accident and Alcohol Detection System using IoT Platform

Received Date:12 May 2022, Accepted Date:01 September 2022, Published Date:17 October 2022


Objective: This study is focused to safeguard the human life from road accidents with imparting assistive technology. Also to meticulously estimate the accident location.Method: A device is developed to detect the vehicle driver alertness and alarming system by considering the blood –alcohol concentration level. The device is equipped with electro mechanical vibration sensing device to detect the primary stage of accident and activates the Global positioning system (GPS) and Global system for mobile communication (GSM). This device sends the location of the accident to the hospitals and to the needy people to safeguard the lives. Findings: An Algorithm is developed to improve the accuracy of the device in order to save the human life. Module is developed to sense and for communication. The developed device is tested at various test conditions and received reliable results to implement for real time applications.

Keywords: Accelerometer; Electromechanical; Microcontroller; GPS Modem; GSM
