Abstract

Accidents like falls in people can happen due to reasons like old age, unconscious mind and poor motor control. Such accidents may result in broken or fractured bones, cuts, and even death. Living with the fear of falling leads to isolation, worsening of mental health, and general degradation of quality of living. If the accidents cannot be prevented, the next best option is detecting them accurately, and alerting the required authorities for medical help. This paper introduces an accident detection mechanism with the help of the Smartphone. Smartphone’s gather the information using the Built-in tri-accelerometer and the data obtained from the accelerometer are analyzed using the displacement based algorithm. On detecting an accident, the user is prompted to respond and can use touch or voice recognition to reduce the false positives. If the user is not responding within a period of time, the application generates alerts like emails and text messages and alerts the predefined contacts. If any unconscious situations occur, the user can press the panic button and the appropriate message/audio/video/image will be sent to the predefined contacts.The system also provides the hospitality facility.That is by providing the details of the nearest hospital.
