There are two sides of every coin, it happens with technology and there are pros and cons of it. In the current scenario, vehicles have provided a convenient commute, but the increasing number of vehicles on roads creates heavy traffic and road accidents. To overcome the problem of road accident, our project on automatic vehicle accident detection and rescue system will help detecting the accident and call in the emergency medic with sending current location. Our survey on this topic is made to construct such a system which is efficient and reliable. Moreover, we analyze different approaches on which work has been done to create a successor system which overcomes false detection of an accident.
