Abstract: Accident detection systems help to reduce fatalities stemming from car accident by decreasing the response time of emergency responders. The symbiosis between communication technologies and vehicles offers opportunity to improve assistance to people injured in traffic accidents, by providing information about the accident to reduce the response time of emergency assistance services. The proposed design of the application can detect accidents, pin-point the location of accident and initiate emergency communications automatically. The use of this application can significantly shorten the time taken for determination of the accident site and warning the concerned authorities. A hardware kit is used to detect the accident, get the GPS location that consists of accelerometer, Node MCU and GPS receiver. And the information about the accident location is sent to the hospitals and the relatives of the user. The message is sent through Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM).
Keywords: Firebase cloud messaging, GPS, Node MCU.
