Abstract: According to the United States Census Bureau, there were 10.8 million motor vehicle accidents in the United States alone in the year 2009. Auto collisions are the leading cause of injury-related deaths, around 1.24 million each year, 25% of the total from all causes. It was reported that 35,900 fatalities occurred due to car related accidents. While some of these accidents are not fatal or critical, people who are involved are left with hefty financial expenses and a definite increase in their insurance policy. As per World Health Organization survey in 2000, the financial cost of these crashes was approximately 518 billion dollars. What if all of these auto accidents could be prevented or at least reduced to stop car related deaths and expenses? These statistics triggered a big concern and hence this system was conceived. This system detects the lane and avoids accidents in a significant manner, still very affordable by using cost effective modules. The paper proposes an intelligent collision avoidance system, and also a key algorithm for recognizing navigation and movement controlling. This in turn removes the factor of human error, when it comes to stopping a car in emergency situations. The proposed system will be a combination of software and hardware, both working in a cohesive manner.
