Abstract: In recent years researchers are trying to develop the automobile industry more and more for safety, reliability, flexibility and entertainment by modern computing and electronics. Consumers are expecting their car to be voice controlled, auto driven and GPS assisted visual directions for driving. Distraction or taking drivers' eye off the road may cause devastating accidents. The Southern part of Asian countries has placed within 100 top accident happening countries in the world (WHO 2011). This paper presents the research work done in the field of automotive safety. This prototype is designed to avoid the diversion caused while controlling the various features available in cars. The heart of this project is the arduino controller. A prototype of a multi featured car system consists of various features like automatic wiper and headlight control, pothole detection and antitheft. Depending upon the rain intensity with the help of rain sensor, the speed of the wiper is varied in automatic wiper feature. The headlight system consists of turning the headlight on, off and provides the facility of automatic switching of headlight. In the pothole detection system along with the ultrasonic sensor, it provides the GPS coordinates to the respective authorities. In the Anti-theft system, while entering the car each user is asked for password. If correct then entering the car is permitted or else the owner is notified through SMS using GSM. The whole prototype works using a bluetooth module. This project focuses on improving human comfort in the existing system so that the driver can pay full attention in driving at all weather, even in all conditions.
