Development of Low Cost Lifesaving System for Automotive Vehicles during Road Accidents 2019-28-2460

Vehicular accidents are life-threatening and result in fatal casualties in developing country such as India. According to estimates, traffic accidents kill more people in India than diseases like Cancer and AIDS. More than 150,000 people are killed every year in traffic accidents in India, which works out to 400 fatalities a day, far higher than developed auto markets like the U.S., which had logged about 40,000 deaths in 2016. The World Health Organization estimates road accidents cost most countries about 3 per cent of their gross domestic product.
India being the fastest growing economy will be the world’s third-largest car market after China and the U.S. by 2020, according to automobile researchers.
According to research study most of death cause due to not getting help on time to the injured person. Research has proven that if injured person is not found any option of help then they also lose the power to fight such critical situation due to psychological effect. When vehicle met accident, people are not getting on time support, this delay is the major cause of death in developing nations. Presently there is no robust system available in market for passenger & commercial vehicles which helps to provide on time help to the injured persons & saves human life. In current situation “low cost life saving device” is need of our society.
This paper deals with the design & development of the low cost-life saving device. This paper also comprises the scenario when any vehicle meet an accidents within certain speed limit then how the intelligent life saving device will work & save the life. Further it explains the type of life saving device design, logical programming and system packaging.
The system has been validated on the vehicle to check the response time & accuracy of calling of the electronic controlled system. Safety features include SMS & voice call based alerts, sharing of vehicle geographical location.
