An Automatic Stopping Mechanism is a project that aims to address the increasing number of accidents and fatalities on the roads by incorporating cutting-edge technologies and innovative features.
The prototype was created using PictoBlox, an interactive graphical coding platform, and consists of several features that can be customized according to the user’s requirements. It utilizes advanced sensors and cameras to detect potential hazards in the environment while the vehicle is in motion. This helps in recognizing dangerous situations and providing real-time alerts to the driver, thereby preventing collisions and promoting safe driving practices.
In addition to this, to further increase the accuracy of the system, the project uses two key PictoBlox extensions. Object Detection and Text to Speech. The Object Detection extension is based on Artificial Intelligence. It helps to identify objects from the images taken by the camera. It can also tell the location and size of the objects identified. The Text to Speech extension is provided by Amazon Web Services which can convert text into synthesized speech.
