Abstract: While travelling on highway we are unaware of the road conditions. Mobile phones today are equipped with inbuilt sensors that give safety enhancement to the drivers on road. The three axis accelerometer and a GPS tracking system of smart phone can give assistance to the driver while travelling. In this paper the emphasis is on safety with advanced driver assistance system (ADAS’s). The three axis accelerometer of an Android based smart phone is used to record and analyze various and external road conditions that could be hazardous to the health of the driver and the automobile. With analysis and alerts of these factors, we can increase a driver’s overall awareness to maximize safety. Google map is used to create road condition using GPS coordinates. Android operating system in smart phone is used for analyzing the road conditions for safety. Once the data is available to the user, he can efficiently and safely drive the vehicle. In addition a device similar to black box is kept in a vehicle that monitors if the accidents occur. This device consists of GPS, collision sensor as a switch, GSM and a microcontroller unit. This device will send a message to the concerned person about the event of the accident.
