Abstract: The improvement in infrastructure and technology has made lives easier and has lead to high demand of automobiles. This increase in demand of automobiles has led to huge traffic hazards and road accidents where the lives of people are under huge risk. When the accidents occur, there is a delay in ambulance arriving to the accident location due to congestion in traffic which increases the chances of death of the victim. Hence, to overcome this problem the proposed system makes use of IOT to detect accident and helps the ambulance rescue system to reach the location for rescue of the victim within less time. This system helps in reducing the loss of life due to fatal accidents. The system makes use of accelerometer sensor signal which is used to detect severe accidents due to some obstacle. Then with the help of micro controller used the system immediately sends an alert message through the GSM module to the concerned guardian and to all the possible nearby rescue team along with the location. when an rescue team arrives at the earliest an notification is sent to the other rescue team which received the message of the accident. As the number of fatal accidents has increased at a large rate this automatic detection of accidents and the rescue system is very useful in the current scenario to rescue the victim as soon as possible.
