INTRODUCTION

Visibility distance is reduced by fog and heavy precipitation, as well as wind-blown

snow, dust and smoke. Low visibility conditions cause increased speed variance,

which increases crash risk. Each year, over 38,700 vehicle crashes occur in fog.

Over 600 people are killed and more than 16,300 people are injured in these

crashes annually.

Accidents are termed as unwanted occurrences which lead to injuries, loss of

production, fatalities, or damage to property and possessions. Road accidents are

undoubtedly the most prevalent and, in general, the reason behind most of the

damage. Road accidents have been and will continue to be one of the greatest

health hazards. There is an enormous rise in road crashes due to over speeding,

low visibility due to dense fog, road planning and construction, under age driving,

drunk driving, lack of public awareness, inefficient authorities and need for

enforcement of existing laws to undertake the menace of discourtesy to rules and

laws.

Moreover, the drivers driving the vehicle cannot able to see the vehicles standing

on the road and gets a stroke from those. Driver doesn’t recognizes the vehicle due

to low visibility on the way. Highways are generally located in open wide areas of

villages with lots of fields around them due to the crops having more moisture the

amount of fog is also high that cause the major accidents in the areas. The familiar

risk factors were interpreted for fatal crashes and correlated with harsh weather,

thus contradicting the possible association between harsh weather and fatal

crashes.

OBJECTIVES

The main purpose of road safety in low visibility is to provide safety to the vehicles

moving on the road with families or children. This revolutionary idea will not only

save lives and material but will also makes the highways of India more safe to

travel in winter season also. The main objectives of this mechanism are -

1. Providing a more safe journey to the travellers.

2. Reduces the major accidents on highways.

3. Drivers will be able to recognize the vehicles standing on road from a


distance.

4. Providing an ultrasonic sensor in light poles becomes easy to install.

METHODOLOGY

In road safety in low visibility mechanism for road safety requires an ultrasonic

sensor, a red led light, Arduino uno. In which the ultrasonic sensor is installed in

the light poles and coded with Arduino for smooth work of sensor.

When the vehicle stops on the road or have some defect in it will get detected by

ultrasonic sensor present in the nearest light pole and the led lights on the pole will

glow in three poles of each side of the detected pole.

This can be easily in sight for the vehicles coming behind from it and can aware

or driver can able to recognize that any vehicle is standing there. So driver can

easily apply the brakes or slows down the speed before reaching there.
