In this paper, a mechanism for vehicle control and accident avoiding system is proposed. The salient features of this project are prevention of forward collision mechanism with alert, braking, lane changing and speed governing, i.e., when the vehicle attains high speed limit, it takes over the speed governing mechanism without the permission of the driver. The vehicle-to-vehicle communication is implemented to send the alert signals to the nearby vehicles whenever an accident occurs. The vehicle working environment for the driver is to avoid the forward collision and conditioning, collision avoidance and condition which are main factors to improve the safe traffic conditions. To implement this system, ARM7 is used. This microcontroller provides more efficient, reliable and effective working. This system estimates the speed and distance of the existing vehicles around, and the targeted vehicle measures these values using ultrasonic sensors. This results the speed of that particular vehicle to avoid collisions. MEMS provide facility for accident detection system. GPS is used to transmit the location of the accident and nearby other vehicles or static things like. ZigBee is used as an alternate to the network areas.
