Development of an Anti-collision Model for vehicles

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Anti–Collision device is a detection device meant to be incorporated into cars for the purpose of safety. As opposed to the anti–collision devices present in the market today, this system is not designed to control the vehicle. Instead, it serves as an alert in the face of imminent collision. The device is intended to find a way to implement a minimum spacing for cars in traffic in an affordable way. It would also achieve safety for the passengers of a moving car. The device is made up of an infrared transmitter and receiver. Also incorporated into it is an audio visual alarm to work in with the receiver and effectively
alert the driver and/or the passengers. To achieve this design, 555 timers coupled both as a stable and monostable circuits were used along with a 38KHz Square – Pulse generator. The device works by
sending out streams of infrared radiation and when these rays are seen by the other equipped vehicle,
both are meant to take the necessary precaution to avert a collision. The device would still sound an alarm even though it is not receiving infrared beams from the oncoming vehicle. This is due to reflection of its own infrared beams. At the end of the design and testing process, overall system was implemented with a constructed work, tested working and perfectly functional.
