Abstract: Commercially, innumerable consignments of valuable freight are moved across India every day. On certain routes, there is always a lurking threat to the security of the freight and finding good food is also problematic for the truckers. Truck drivers have a high rate of occupation-related injury and the highest rate of on-job fatality. This project aims to develop an android application for android operating system (OS) platform which helps drivers to get help from their passersby or forthcoming trucks and send alert to their owners if there is any threat in their routes. The Owners can monitor the movement of their trucks and the threats as well. This ensures better communication with drivers on the fleet on the same route under a single corridor. This app is developed using the platform Android Studio which is a free and open-source software.
