•The system is fitted on the vehicle body and monitors the impact on the vehicle body.
•The impacts greater than a threshhold value are considered an accident.
•The system also monitors the orientation of the vehicle about the three axes. Any change in the vehicle orientation(such as falling upside down from a cliff) are also monitored.
•It also keeps the log of the vehicle for the last few minutes and acts like a 'black box' recording the speed and orientation of the vehicle, which can be used to track the cause of the accident.
•When an accident is detected, the location of the vehcle is recorded using GPS.
•The accident data is sent through SMS to the numbers of specified authorities. When an SMS is recieved by those, the companion app installed on their device detects the SMS and alerts them.
The coding is done using Arduino IDE and the companion android app is created using Tasker
