With the advancement in Internet of things (IoT) almost every device can be monitored from web and produce data for various analyses. Recent reports show the ability of IoT in different applications like healthcare, industrial sector and government sectors. Our work is to make use of IoT for the vehicle condition monitoring i.e., with respect to various factors including temperature inside the engine cabin, vibrations caused to the vehicle from external sources, speed and location of the vehicle. All the above factors can play a major role in detection of accident. Which is further useful in safeguarding the victim? Our main aim is to save the lives of accident victims by sending the information regarding the accident to the concerned persons or systems. We make it possible by using different sensors and an MCU to process and send data to cloud. The sensors includes SW420 vibration detector for detecting the impact levels, ds18b20 temperature sensor for sensing the temperature, L80 GPS module for locating the vehicle, ESP8266 module for connecting the system with web and finally Adriano UNO microcontroller for processing .The results obtained shows the effectiveness of the system when compared to the other existing systems.
