Accident Alert System

ABSTRACT
This project aims to develop a device that informs the control station if the vehicle in which the device is fitted, met with a severe accident. This project is implemented using an accelerometer sensor, which works using MEMS technology along with GSM and GPS.The device has a micro controller connected to an Accelerometer sensor, GPS module and GSM module. The software that is embedded in the micro controller controls the various operations of the device. The micro controller monitors the waveform from the accelerometer sensor.The GPS module calculates the geographical position of the module. This helps in detecting the location/longitude of the module. The GPS system functions on the basis of NEMA protocol. The device monitors the vibrations due to impact from the sensors that are received as analog values. The user can feed the tolerance level of impact. If the level is above the tolerance level (in case of accident), the device sends alert messages (SMS) along with the location data from GPS module to the control station or to hospital using the GSM module.The control station or hospital receives the message from the vehicle through the GSM module, which helps to initiate the appropriate action.

Accident Alert System

1. INTRODUCTION
In search of our project we plan to do something, which is ye to be established and must be useful to day to day life. We analyzed the current situation and realized that if there may be system that informs the accidents at the right time, we will be able to save thousands of precious life. So we decided to develop such a system that informs the accidents to a station or the right person. It is implemented using an accelerometer sensor which works using MEMS technology along with GPS and GSM. The various operations of the device are controlled by the software that is embedded in the microcontroller.

1.1 MICROCONTROLLERS AND MICROPROCESSORS
The contrast between a Microprocessor and Microcontroller is best exemplified by the fact that most Microprocessors have many opcodes for moving data from external memory to CPU; Microcontroller have one or two. Microprocessor may have one or two types of bit handling instructions; Microcontrollers will have many. Microprocessors are concerned with rapid movement of code and data from external address to the chip. Microprocessor must have many additional parts to be optional. Microcontrollers can function as a computer with addition of no external digital parts. Microprocessors are intended to be general purpose digital computer where as Microcontroller are intended to be special purpose digital controllers. Microprocessors contain a CPU, memory, addressing circuits and interrupt handling data. Microcontrollers have these features as well as timers, parallel and serial I/O internal RAM and ROM.

1.2 INTRODUCTION TO EMBEDDED SYSTEMS
Embedded System is any electronic equipment with built in intelligence and dedicated software. All embedded Systems use either a microprocessor or a micro controller. The application of these controllers makes user-friendly cheaper solutions and enables to add features otherwise impossible to provide by other means. Embedded devices can be defined as any device with a microprocessor or micro controller embedded in it that has a relatively focused functionality. The software for the Embedded System is called firmware. The firmware is written in Assembly language for time or resource critical operations or using higher-level languages like C or Embedded C. The software will be simultaneously micro code simulations for the largest processor. Since they are supported to perform only specific task, these programs are stored in Read Only Memories (ROMs). Moreover they may need no or minimal inputs from the user, hence the user interface like monitor, mouse & large keyboard etc. may be absent.

The assembly language is used in the case of tome critical applications. Kalady Dept.Accident Alert System Embedded Systems are also known as Real time Systems since they respond to an input or event and produce the result within the guaranteed time period. This time period can be a few microseconds to days or months. Now day’s high-level languages replace most of the assembly language constructs. ASIET. The software program for real time system is written either in assembly or highlevel language such as C. Page 4 of 73 . Embedded Systems Development: In the development of Embedded System application the hardware and software must go in hand in hand. The software created by the software engineers must be burnt into or micro coded into the hardware or the micro controller produced by the VLSI engineers.

Hence products using embedded system are slimmer and more compact. less power will be consumed. just one system on-chip can replace all of these. The integration of various ICs shortens the traveling rout and time of data to be transmitted resulting in higher ASIET.

GSM is an open standard which is currently developed by the 3GPP. This fact has also meant that data communication was built into the system from very early on. GSM differs significantly from its predecessors in that both signaling and speech channels are digital. GSM is a cellular network. GSM networks operate at various different radio frequencies. each spaced 200 kHz apart. The advantage for network operators has been the ability to deploy equipment from different vendors because the open standard allows easy inter-operability. and the frame duration is 4.Accident Alert System 7. Most GSM networks operate at 900 MHz or 1800 MHz. Page 21 of 73 . GSM service is used by over 1. enabling subscribers to use their phones in many parts of the world. Time division multiplexing is used to allow eight speech channels per Radio frequency channel. There are eight burst periods grouped into what is called a TDMA frame.615 ms. Kalady Dept. the standards have allowed network operators to offer roaming services which mean subscribers can use their phone all over the world. The channel data rate is 270. In the 900 MHz band the uplink frequency band is 890-915 MHz. which means that mobile phones connect to it by searching for cells in the immediate vicinity. From the point of view of the consumer. This 25 MHz bandwidth is subdivided into 124 carrier frequencies. the key advantage of GSM systems has been higher digital voice quality and low cost alternatives to making calls such as text messaging.1 INTRODUCTION TO GSM The Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) is the most popular standard for Mobile phones in the world. The ubiquity of the GSM standard makes international roaming very common between mobile phone operators. and the downlink frequency band is 935-960 MHz. which means that it is considered a second generation (2G) mobile phone system.833 kb/s.

Accident Alert System 7.2.4 RADIO LINK ASPECTS The International Telecommunication Union (ITU), which manages the international allocation of radio spectrum (among other functions) allocated the bands 890-915 MHz for the uplink (mobile station to base station) and 935-960 MHz for the downlink (base station to mobile station) for mobile networks in Europe. Since this range was already being used in the early 1980s by the analog systems of the day, the CEPT had the foresight to reserve the top 10 MHz of each band for the GSM network that was still being developed. Eventually, GSM will be allocated the entire 2x25 MHz bandwidth. Since radio spectrum is a limited resource shared by all users, a method must be devised to divide up the bandwidth among as many users as possible. The method chosen by GSM is a combination of Time and Frequency Division Multiple Access (TDMA/FDMA). The FDMA part involves the division by frequency of the total 25 MHz bandwidth into 124 carrier frequencies of 200 kHz bandwidth. One or more carrier frequencies are then assigned to each base station. Each of these carrier frequencies is then divided in time, using a TDMA scheme, into eight time slots. One time slot is used for transmission by the mobile and one for reception. They are separated in time so that the mobile unit does not receive and transmit at the same time, a fact that simplifies the electronics. Indoor coverage is also supported by GSM and is achieved by using power splitters to deliver the radio signal from the antenna outdoors to a separate indoor antenna distribution system. This is typically deployed when a lot of call capacity is needed indoors, for example in shopping centers or airports. However, this is not a pre-requisite, since indoor coverage is also provided by in-building penetration of the radio signal. The modulation used in GSM is Gaussian minimum shift keying (GMSK), a kind of continuous-phase frequency shift keying. In GMSK, the signal being modulated is smoothened with a Gaussian low-pass filter prior to being fed to a frequency modulator, which greatly reduces the interference to neighboring channels.

Accident Alert System In this project GSM module is used to send the message containing the accident information along with the latitude and longitude position of the module at the time of accident. For that we use an ordinary GSM mobile hand set. The GSM module can be controlled by certain commands called AT commands. Through our software we control the GSM modem to generate and transmit text messages on to another GSM modem specified in the program. Example for the AT command are, AT :- Sends to the module for detecting the proper working of the module. ATE0 :- Command for turn off the echo. AT+CMGF=1 :-Command for shifting module into text mode AT+CMGS=”+91……….” :- Command for connecting to another module. After sending the AT the module will return an OK message to show the proper functioning of the module. If OK received then we will send the command ATE0 to the module to turn off the echoing of the commands. Then the command AT+CMGF=1 shifts the module to the text mode. The module now returns “>”.Then AT+CMGS = ”+91**********” command to select the number. If “>” is received from the GSM module, type the SMS data and give Ctrl+Z. This will send the SMS.

Accident Alert System microfabrication technology. While the electronics are fabricated using integrated circuit (IC) process sequences (e.g., CMOS, Bipolar, or BICMOS processes), the micromechanical components are fabricated using compatible "micromachining" processes that selectively etch away parts of the silicon wafer or add new structural layers to form the mechanical and electromechanical devices. MEMS promises to revolutionize nearly every product category by bringing together silicon-based microelectronics with micromachining technology, making possible the realization of complete systems-on-a-chip. MEMS is an enabling technology allowing the development of smart products, augmenting the computational ability of microelectronics with the perception and control capabilities of microsensors and microactuators and expanding the space of possible designs and applications. Microelectronic integrated circuits can be thought of as the "brains" of a system and MEMS augments this decision-making capability with "eyes" and "arms", to allow microsystems to sense and control the environment. Sensors gather information from the environment through measuring mechanical, thermal, biological, chemical, optical, and magnetic phenomena. The electronics then process the information derived from the sensors and through some decision making capability direct the actuators to respond by moving, positioning, regulating, pumping, and filtering, thereby controlling the environment for some desired outcome or purpose. Because MEMS devices are manufactured using batch fabrication techniques similar to those used for integrated circuits, unprecedented levels of functionality, reliability, and sophistication can be placed on a small silicon chip at a relatively low cost.

TXREG.The USART Asynchronous module consists of the following important elements: • Baud Rate Generator • Sampling Circuit • Asynchronous Transmitter • Asynchronous Receiver 9.1 USART ASYNCHRONOUS TRANSMITTER The USART transmitter block diagram is shown . The most common data format is 8 bits. Once the TXREG register transfers the data to the TSR register (occurs in one TCY). the TXREG register is empty and flag bit TXIF (PIR1<4>) is set. the USART uses standard non-return-tozero (NRZ) format (one start bit. An on-chip. The TXREG register is loaded with data in software. The heart of the transmitter is the transmit (serial) shift register (TSR). dedicated. The baud rate generator produces a clock either x16 or x64 of the bit shift rate. The USART transmits and receives the LSb first. As soon as the STOP bit is transmitted. The TSR register is not loaded until the STOP bit has been transmitted from the previous load. the TSR is loaded with new data from the TXREG register (if available). but use the same data format and baud rate.

Asynchronous mode is stopped during SLEEP.Accident Alert System bit 1: OERR: Overrun Error bit 1 = Overrun error (Can be cleared by clearing bit CREN) 0 = No overrun error bit 0: RX9D: 9th bit of received data (Can be parity bit) USART Asynchronous Mode In this mode. Asynchronous mode is selected by clearing bit SYNC (TXSTA<4>). This interrupt can be enabled/disabled by setting/clearing enable bit TXIE ASIET. Parity is not supported by the hardware. of Electronics and Communication Engg.11. 8-bit baud rate generator can be used to derive standard baud rate frequencies from the oscillator.

the RC6/TX/CK pin will revert to hi-impedance. Status bit TRMT is a read only bit. Kalady Dept. the TSR register is empty. transmit bit TX9 (TXSTA<6>) should be set and the ninth bit should be written to TX9D (TXSTA<0>). another bit TRMT (TXSTA<1>) shows the status of the TSR register. It will reset only when new data is loaded into the TXREG register. While flag bit TXIF indicates the status of the TXREG register. resulting in an empty TXREG. The ninth bit must be written before writing the 8-bit data to the TXREG register. Page 52 of 73 . A back-to-back transfer is thus possible Clearing enable bit TXEN during a transmission will cause the transmission to be aborted and will reset the transmitter. which is set when the TSR register is empty. an incorrect ninth data bit may be loaded in the TSR register. The actual transmission will not occur until the TXREG register has been loaded with data and the baud rate generator (BRG) has produced a shift clock (Figure 10-2). Transmission is enabled by setting enable bit TXEN(TXSTA<5>). The transmission can also be started by first loading the TXREG register and then setting enable bit TXEN. regardless of the state of enable bit TXIE and cannot be cleared in software.In order to select 9-bit transmission. ASIET. At that point. when transmission is first started. transfer to the TXREG register will result in an immediate transfer to TSR. In such a case. so the user has to poll this bit in order to determine if the TSR register is empty. of Electronics and Communication Engg.Accident Alert System ( PIE1<4>). As a result. Flag bit TXIF will be set. Normally. No interrupt logic is tied to this bit.This is because a data write to the TXREG register can result in an immediate transfer of the data to the TSR register (if the TSR is empty).

If bit OERR is set. reception is enabled by setting bit CREN (RCSTA<4>). If a high speed baud rate is desired. Load data to the TXREG register (starts transmission).Once synchronous is selected. The RCREG is a double buffered register (i.2 USART ASYNCHRONOUS RECEIVER The receiver block diagram is shown. flag bit RCIF (PIR1<5>) is set. The data recovery block is actually a high speed shifter operating at x16 times the baud rate. whereas the main receive serial shifter operates at the bit rate or at FOSC.The heart of the receiver is the receive (serial) shift register (RSR). it is a two deep FIFO). Overrun bit OERR has to be cleared in software. If interrupts are desired. If 9-bit transmission is selected. 6.

The actual interrupt can be enabled/ disabled by setting/clearing enable bit RCIE (PIE1<5>).e. If 9-bit transmission is desired. Enable the asynchronous serial port by clearing bit SYNC and setting bit SPEN. Kalady Dept. Initialize the SPBRG register for the appropriate baud rate. the ninth bit should be loaded in bit TX9D.. if he RCREG register is still full. 3. The RCREG register can be read twice to retrieve the two bytes in the FIFO. then set transmit bit TX9. which will also set bit TXIF. the overrun error bit OERR (RCSTA<1>) will be set. Page 53 of 73 . The data is received on the RC7/RX/DT pin and drives the data recovery block.Accident Alert System Steps to follow when setting up an Asynchronous Transmission: 1. 9. It is cleared when the RCREG register has been read and is empty. Flag bit RCIF is a read only bit which is cleared by the hardware. Enable the transmission by setting bit TXEN. It is possible for two bytes of data to be received and transferred to the RCREG FIFO and a third byte to begin shifting to the RSR register. After sampling the STOP bit. then set enable bit TXIE. On the detection of the STOP bit of the third byte. 5.

Enable the asynchronous serial port by clearing bit SYNC and setting bit SPEN. Read the 8-bit received data by reading the RCREG register. then set bit RX9. Bit FERR and the 9th receive bit are buffered the same way as the receive data. 8. so it is essential to clear error bit OERR if it is set. Enable the reception by setting bit CREN. Page 54 of 73 . If interrupts are desired. clear the error by clearing enable bit CREN. 4.
