India witnessed one of the highest road accidents in the world, as stated by Union road transport and highways ministry in 2016. Road accident often takes place due to bad road & weather condition, reckless driving etc. Accident occurring are often not noticed or reported late that leads to loss of victim’s life or serious injuries caused permanently. One of the problems associated with bad road condition is the pothole on road.Accident Alert Pothole Detection System (AAPDS)is a system designed for reporting of accident and potholes on roads. The System consists of various sensors that are used for sensing accident’s and pothole’s on roads. A smartphone is used to provide exact location of accidents using GSM & GPS module present in smartphone after the response from the sensor is taken. A map is provided to navigate the location of accident. Similarly a sensor is used for sensing pothole’s. This data is then processed by the processing module & send to the smartphone, where the map is used to display the location of pothole’s. Further the collection of such data can be send to concern authorities where this kind of data is stored and managed for managing the road condition and providing prior warning of accident prone area.
