Design Of An Automotive Safety System Using Controller Area Network



Driver and passenger safety is one of the prime concerns in modern day vehicle. Automotive electronics is a rapidly expanding area with an increasing number of safety, driver assistance, and infotainment devices becoming standard in new vehicles. In existing system the main clogs are cost along with many things. For invulnerability four sensors are used. Temperature sensor is used to give the higher temperature notification on engine to retard faults about it. Light dependent sensor is useful for Glaring effect accidents by reason of opposite vehicle headlight illumination at night driving. Due to inaccurate pressure level monitoring in tyres, accident may occur so we prevent it through Air pressure sensors which will further enhance comfort and safety. Accident prevention sensor detects the obstacle in the path which helps prevent accident. It is also useful in parking the vehicle which detects whether any vehicle are present close to the vehicle. The proposed system has three Master and Slave modules and is communicating through CAN (Controller Area Network). Sensors are interfaced to master and the slave. The proposed system is cost effective safety system, reliable and simple.
