Abstract: Delay in providing Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is the cause of the high mortality rate in road traffic accidents in countries like India. There is delay involved in each and every stage of the process, right from reporting an accident to dispatching an ambulance, till the patient is safely handed over to the casualty. Minimizing this delay can help save lives. We propose a comprehensive solution to both accident detection and ambulance management. When the in-vehicle accident detection module reports an accident, the main server automatically dispatches the nearest ambulance to the accident spot. The android application used by the ambulance driver assists the driver to reach the location quickly and safely. Automation of accident detection and ambulance dispatch, along with providing guidance to the ambulance driver, is achieved here. This can save precious time and help standardize the whole process. � 2016 IEEE.
