The largest cause of unnatural deaths in the world today (apart from diseases) is road accidents. With increase in population and thus in the number of vehicles, accidents are only going to increase. Most of these deaths are due to delay in medical attention to the injured. The major cause of this delay is lack of intimation or delayed intimation of the accident to emergency medical response authorities. This can be addressed by the system proposed. This system uses an accelerometer, GSM modem and a GPS device along with a microcontroller to report an accident.
