Abstract : In recent years, road accidents usually occur as a result of the laxity of drivers, and the number of such accidents is increasing exponentially. Lack of care, sleep, and attention is considered as the primary factors. In this perspective, the proposed work discusses a new strategy by which an electric scooter can stop, to avoid a fatal accident. Here, a microcontroller-based braking methodology is employed. With the use of ultrasonic sensors, it appropriately detects the fast approaching obstacles in front of the scooter. Continually, the received signals are used by the microcontroller to proceed the further braking action. Also, the system has been made by considering the vehicles driven by a disabled person so that the driver can avoid the panic situation while the emergency braking is on demand.
