DEVELOPMENT OF AN EMBEDDED SAFETY SYSTEM FOR AN ELECTRIC VEHICLE
Keywords:Live tracking, GPS, Android Application, Theft and Accident detection.
Every driver in a fleet has to make hundreds of minute decisions every day that affect their safety and the safety of others. At every point, from lane-changes to speed to distractions, opportunity exists for something to go wrong. From driver error to mechanical failure to simple bad luck, decisionmaking is both impactful and unavoidable. Most companies work hard to hire quality drivers and ensure proper training procedures are in place, but even the best drivers are susceptible to human error. Leveraging a Vehicle Monitoring Program can be a great asset for fleets. In existing system, the vehicle parameters are measured using required sensors and the data is processed using Arduino microcontroller and the measured parameters are sent to the web server using GSM. The stored data is accessed through a website using a browser. The computing and data transferring capabilities are limited due to the microcontroller and GSM. Another problem is only one or two parameters can be measured using a single product. Our proposed system takes advantages over the existing system in the area of computing, data transferring and data presenting. The main motto of this project is to integrate all the individual products into one single product which suits in all types of vehicle and to access it through a user-friendly android application. All the required parameters are measured using desired sensors and they are connected to Node MCU. It will transfer the data to the cloud seamlessly using built-in Wi-Fi module and an external LTE modem. The vehicle can be monitored by accessing the data through the android application.
