Abstract

In the current scenario one of the major causes of road accidents in the world is the fact that after driving hundreds of kilometers at a stretch, the driver feels drowsy and eventually dozes off while driving or they are not aware of the environment they might just be entering. They might also be unaware of any defect in their cars. There is an alarming increase in hit and run cases caused by drivers driving under the influence of alcohol. So, there is a pressing need of a device which prevents this, so that a lot of lives can be saved every day. Safety is the primary concern for humans. When it comes to driving, we need to be extra cautious. So, this project aims at developing an affordable solution to these safety concerns. The proposed system will be mounted on a car, in front of the driver's seat, which will continuously focus on the person driving the vehicle thereby monitoring the person's actions and give voice messages to the driver, instructing him about the safety procedures every time he comes inside the car. If he found to be drowsy, he is alerted by a voice message telling him that he is drowsy and he should stop the car. If he is found to be under the influence of alcohol or tailgating while driving, the GPS coordinates of the car along with the details of the car, are sent to the nearest control room, so that appropriate action can be taken by the police. So, this system has the capability of ensuring the driver's safety along with the co-passengers and can easily be integrated with the existing safety systems in the car. This will also enhance overall road safety, by reporting any kind of reckless driving to the nearest control room. In future, it can be enforced by law for every car to have such a safety system installed for driver and passenger protection. Hence the system is a complete solution which prevents accidents, so that a lot of lives can be saved every day.
