Abstract

Major accidents on highways, freeways and local roads can lead to huge social and economic impacts. Minor accidents may be resolved by the passengers themselves and do not require escorting to hospitals whereas major accidents where airbags are deployed require immediate attention of authorities. Automatic Smart Accident Detection (ASAD) is an auto-detection unit system that immediately notifies an Emergency Contact through a text message when an instant change in acceleration, rotation and an impact force in an end of the vehicle is detected by the system, detailing the location and time of the accident. The idea is that as soon as an accident is detected by the system, the authorities should immediately be notified to prevent further car congestion as well as allow the passengers to be escorted to the hospital in a timely fashion. The system involves the use of fuzzy logic as a decision support built into the smartphone application that analyzes the incoming data from the sensors and makes a decision based on a set of rules. The simulated results show a 98.67% accuracy of the system with failures resulting from the 'gray regions' of the variable values.
