Review on Accident Detection and Fuel Monitoring System

  • Nimesh Dhoke, Pradyumna Asalkar, et. al.


 In today’s world, actual record of fuel filled and fuel consumption in vehicles is not maintained. It results in making the fuel tanks empty. To avoid this we are implementing a microcontroller based fuel monitoring and vehicle tracking system. We have used the reed switch which works according to the principle of Hall Effect for sensing the amount of fuel filled in the vehicle and amount of fuel consumed. Then this record is stored in the system memory. This system stores the record for several logs. We have used a microcontroller for our system. Also we have used the GPS technology to track the vehicle.

With the rapid development of society, there are some pitfalls including the increasing number of vehicle accidents. On average one out of every four motor vehicle accidents results in some type of injury. Traffic accidents are one of the leading causes of decease of life in most of the countries. As number of vehicle increases mean while the accident also increases. The government has taken number of actions and so many awareness program also contacted even though the accident increases as population increases. The accident alert system is designed using IOT and an android app. It is primarily developed to save lives of people in critical situations (or) in case of road accidents. The app is interconnected with sensors, which are connected in user’s vehicle and responsible for detection of a fall down or accident event, and after they sends this information to the application which is pre-installed in the user’s mobile. The application will send alert SMS or voice message regarding accident and its location to emergency contacts (Family members) and Emergency Medical Services automatically. The user needs to register his details while installing it and can add his desired contacts, to which the information needs to be passed. It may take 2-3 min of time to send this message. The message would also contain the location along with time. This would help save precious time in situations where an immediate action for the event has to take place in saving the life of dear ones.
