Abstract: Road accidents are pervasive and prove to be fatal. The presented paper deals with the construction and working of a device for obstacle detection. Obstacle detection is a mechanism used for the identification of any obstruction that may hinder the way of the vehicle. It can improve mobility as well as the safety of people who drive on roads. The proposed system automatically turns left or right on detecting obstacles using ultrasonic sensors & an Arduino. The primary focus is to make the vehicle secure and to ensure the safety of the driver. The project initiated based on a case study done by gathering information from community partners and bus drivers of Chitkara University, Punjab, India.
