Odegwo Ifeanyi James | Obodoeze Fidelis C. | Nwobodo Lois O. | Oliver Ifeoma Catherine "Internet-of-things Based Real-time Accident Alert and Reporting System for Nigeria" Published in International Journal of Trend in Scientific Research and Development (ijtsrd), ISSN: 2456-6470, Volume-6 | Issue-6, October 2022, pp.1171-1177, URL: https://www.ijtsrd.com/papers/ijtsrd51995.pdf

Accident is an unfortunate and unplanned event or circumstance, which usually occurs without informing the road users or the driver and can lead to serious injuries or even death. The time it occurs and the time of reporting should be very close to avoid death of the victims involved in the road accident. Because of the high rate of accidents involving different road users in Nigeria such as pedestrians, Bike (Okada) riders, Keke (tricycles), trucks, commercial buses and private cars, there is an urgent need to create a system that can alert the family of the victims and Federal Road Safety (FRSC) officers, wherever they are, on time, of the location of the accident in order to take the victims to nearest hospital to save precious human lives. The lack of medical treatment on time is the major cause of high mortality rate or deaths in Nigeria arising from road accidents; many victims bleed to death as result of delay in receiving urgent medical treatment. The proposed accident alert and reporting system will address the delays in giving immediate medical attention to accident victims by providing early detection of accidents and communicating the location information of the accident spot via the GPS and GPRS modules immediately to the emergency responses such as FRSC, hospitals and victims’ family on time in order to provide quick assistance for the injured victim(s).
