Abstract: Traffic accidents are one of the leading causes of fatalities. An important indicator of survival rates after an accident is the time between the accident and when emergency medical personnel are dispatched to the accident location. By eliminating the time between when an accident occurs and when the first responders are dispatched to the scene decreases mortality rates, we can save lives. One approach to eliminating the delay between accident occurrence and first responder dispatch is to use in-vehicle automatic accident detection and notification systems, which sense when a traffic accident is likely to occur and immediately notify emergency occurred. These in-vehicle systems, however, are not available in all cars and are unaffordable to retrofit in older vehicles. In this paper, such a system is described the main application of which is early accident detection. It can automatically detect traffic accidents using accelerometers and immediately notify a central emergency dispatch server after an accident, using GPS coordinates. Along with the data it will send the number of the vehicle too. This paper provides the following contributions to detecting traffic accidents via ARM7 controller. Here it is seen how arm controller, accelerometer, GSM connections, and GPS can be used to provide situational awareness responders. The codes are written and compiled in Keil ARMIDE.
