Geophone Accident Prevention System
Abstract: According to the Annual Global Road Crash statistics nearly 1.3 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3, 287 deaths a day. An additional 20-50 million are injured or disabled out of which 20 % accidents take place at the zebra crossing. This paper introduces a scheme for prevention of these accidents, for this firstly a geophone will be broached at the pedestrian accident prone area. Here the ground movement is converted into electrical voltage which is recorded and sent to traffic system recording station. Now, the recording station is synchronized with the traffic light which is in the close affinity of the accident prone area, which will display a specific light for each case for example, a red light will be used to show the drivers that there are crowded pedestrians and the imminent junction.
