“SAFE CRUISING SYSTEM” is an intelligent and adaptive cruise control gadget based on a technology, which has been devised to reduce the number of road accidents, by manifold. This system ensures automatic, intelligent adaptive control of the vehicle by automatic control of brakes and throttle. In this paper, light is thrown on how electronics and computers can be combined to achieve what will become a bare necessity in the near future. This system would be just an additional gadget that has to be fitted to the car, so no change in the assembly line of a car is required. The system can adapt to any kind of situation while driving (be it crowded roads or highways) and to any kind of condition (be it rain, snow, fog, day or night).
This system incorporates a strip of Ultrasonic sensors in conjunction with vision camera, and corresponding controllers and is applicable up to a range of 15 metres. This system deals with automatically controlling all systems, thereby leaving the driver with the job of steering the vehicle, ensuring that he cannot have an accident under any circumstances.
