The implementation of an IoT-based accident response system represents a significant advancement in enhancing emergency services within urban environments. This system integrates a network of IoT sensors strategically placed in both traffic lights and vehicle on-boards to continuously monitor real-time traffic conditions and swiftly detect accidents and emergencies. Utilizing sensors like accelerometers and vibration sensors, the system can promptly identify various types of accidents, such as collisions and vehicle rollovers. Upon accident detection, critical information, including the accident location and time, is relayed to local emergency services for immediate response coordination. Simultaneously, the system optimizes traffic flow by sending requests for green signals to traffic light poles through RFID technology, ensuring a clear path for emergency vehicles. By streamlining emergency response processes and leveraging IoT technology, this system significantly reduces response times, enhances urban safety, and maximizes the utilization of emergency resources in cities. This abstract encapsulates the key features and benefits of the IoT-powered emergency vehicle system, highlighting its innovative approach to improving accident response efficiency in urban areas
