An accident is a deviation from expected behavior of event that adversely affects the property, living body or persons and the environment. Security in vehicle to vehicle communication or travelling is primary concern for everyone. The work presented in this article documents the designing of an accident detection system. The accident detection system design informs the police control room or any other emergency calling system about the accident. An accelerometer sensor has been used to detect abrupt change in g-forces in the vehicle due to accident. When the range of g- forces comes under the accident severity, then the microcontroller activates the GSM modem to send a pre-stored SMS to a predefined phone number. Also a buzzer is switched on. The product design was tested in various conditions. The test result confirms the stability and reliability of the system.
