Various technologies have been developed for safer and more comfortable road travel. Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are being adopted for numerous purposes to solve traffic problems. In this paper, an in-vehicle system capable of avoiding or lessening the impact of collision is designed, developed, and validated. Analysis has also been done on an Indian road to check the reliability of the data obtained. The system detects the obstacles around the vehicle and issues warning to the driver. Study provides in-depth analysis and methodology in order to warn about safe distance, which will help in decision-making of driver to reduce the impact of collision. Impact Reduction Scheme also provides cause of accidents which may help in formulating an effective, verifiable, and justified insurance claim and redress system.
