Abstract: The project is based on safety measures of vehicles. It is inspired by the daily observation during a drive related to the accidents caused around us or sometimes even with us. With increase in number of vehicles comes increase in number of road accidents, though the automobile sector have achieved a huge margin on reducing the number of accidents by advancing the safety systems in the vehicles still airbag system in cars need somewhat development, as it is observed in many cases the crash leads to some major casualties due to the failure of airbag system i.e. the airbags fail to open when required and the driver suffers injuries. These kind of casualties involved accidents are usually caused due to the drivers not reacting to the situation accordingly within the response time, to overcome the same issue a External Airbag System has been introduced which will surely contribute in reducing the number of casualties during accidents. The circuit, working and need of the system is briefly discussed in this paper.
