Obstacle Detection for Automobiles using IoT

Janesh Kumar Chhaniwal, Alka Rani


In today’s world most of the time we encounter the road accidents and these are rapidly increasing day by day. The major cause is the carelessness of the people, especially those people, who do not follow the traffic rules. The metropolitan cities where there is huge population and people having more automobiles. we need to understand how precious our life is and for that we need more advancement in our technologies, one of the most prominent technologies so far is the obstacle detector automobiles which will not only detect the automobiles but also the presence of a human which not only save the life of the humans but also the pets. The robot system has been developed that can perform various tasks for the physically challenged. To avoid collisions with unexpected obstacles, mobile robots use ultrasonic rangefinders for detection and mapping. Describes the obstacle avoidance strategy used for this robot. This strategy relies heavily on the performance of the ultrasonic rangefinder, so we will discuss in detail the impact of these sensors and their limitations on the obstacle avoidance algorithm. The impediment avoidance robotics is used for detecting boundaries and averting the collision. This is an self-sustaining robot. The layout of the impediment avoidance robotic calls for the combination of many sensors in line with their task. Obstacle detection is a main requirement of this self-sustaining robotic. The robotic gets facts from the surroundings thru sensors connected to the robotic. Some sensor devices used to detect obstacles, such as impact sensors, infrared sensors, and ultrasonic sensors. Ultrasonic sensors are ideal for detecting obstacles, are inexpensive and have long distances.
