Abstract

Our project idea began with our group talking about ways to reduce traffic and the main causes of traffic accidents. We found out that emergency vehicles are involved in many wrecks. This advancement could help to save lives every day. First Responders are involved in emergency vehicle crashes every day that prevent them from doing their jobs, saving our and our loved ones' lives. Our goal is to help prevent this problem by increasing the communication abilities of emergency vehicles with the vehicles around them; thus creating a safer and quicker way for first responders to get to the accident and do their jobs. We plan on doing this using an Arduino box and microphones to detect the sound of sirens and illuminate a signal inside of a car that signals an emergency vehicle is approaching. We also plan on working with Google Maps, we want to allow emergency vehicle drivers to flip a switch that would then put a symbol that would show this vehicle on all Google Maps, either rerouting all users or telling them to move to the side of the road.
