Abstract: Accident deaths are a major problem not only in India but the entire world. Statistics are a proof that far more number of accidents deaths are due to car accidents rather than airplane crash deaths. In this paper, the proposed model aims to solve the problem by establishing an information infrastructure that would help connect the street cameras to the concerned authorities like police and ambulance and provide critical assistance to the victims at the fastest. It has been noticed that most of the car accident deaths in India are due to untimely assistance provide to the victims. The proposed solution best works in the scenario of accident prone areas and would save the high operational costs due to human involvement and provide more objective support. The system serves as an information gateway from the street camera to authorities like the police and hospitals. It detects accidents using image processing and sends an alert to the authorities. An adaptive traffic flow system has been introduced at the junctions and it is based on the traffic density in the lanes.
Keywords: Accident reporting system, Accident recording, smart traffic management, Vehicle tracking, Adaptive traffic flow system at intersections.
