Availability and accessibility to high-speed vehicles is very common. In this fast paced world, while teenagers own such vehicles to have fun & excitement, others use it to reach their destination faster. This sometimes results in dangerous driving and causes major accidents. To avoid this, a lot of research and developments made in this field and hence a lot of safety devices are implemented on modern vehicles. Some of these include the electronics stability program (ESP), secure tyre system(STS), anti-lock braking system(ABS), airbags and seat belts etc. But these are very expensive which comes with a cost. This hinders common access/usage to such safety systems. Vehicles manufactured with these sensors are hard to find in lower priced economical vehicles. Also there is lack of portability of such systems, to owner having more than one vehicle need to have such costly system separately installed in each vehicle. So in this paper, we target mobile devices (not only smartphone)as an alternative device for ADASs that makes use of available sensors and can alert the driver while negligence driving.The proof of concept can done by developing an application in a mobile device that makes use of available following sensors, collect the data and analyze it to conclude on any danger and alert the driver.
