Mountainous Road Accident Safety System
Road accidents in mountainous regions are mainly due to blind turns and lack of visibility. In the present work, a
mountainous road accident safety system is proposed by using Load gauge and Wheatstone circuit to provide an indicator on
the other side of the (blind) turn. The system is based on principle of strain gauge. As the vehicle pass over the load gauge,
the change in resistance will be communicated on other side, indicating arrival of a vehicle. The indication can be in the form of LED display, which will work even in night time. Thus the system can effectively minimize chances for accidents.
The proposed model has been demonstrated on a laboratory scale indicating change in resistance and voltage as the input weight (of vehicle) changes.
