Abstract: Internet of things is changing our world. It is a massive global network that allows people to communicate with each other. Nowadays, Internet of things are using in every field whether it is communication or transportation.

Key words: Transportation, Internet of things, Technology, Transmission.

TECHNICAL REPORT ON INTERNET OF THINGS   

The Internet of Things is a computing concept that describes a future where everyday physical objects will be connected to the internet and be able to identify themselves to other devices. This term refers to devices that collect and transmit data via internet. Nowadays, the internet of things is changing our world this vast rapidly growing network of devices enable us to since our world far beyond the walls of the businesses interconnecting things coming together at scale in real-time build a high resolution awareness of what’s happening all around us to what should be happening but it applying smart analytics to this flood of big data creates fresh insights that can help enable new ways of working, sharing information and interacting with the world.

Whereas transportation, Accidents are increasing in the world. Around 1, 37,000 people were killed in road accidents that’s more than people killed in all wars together. There are various reasons ranging from bad road conditions, over speeding, Poor Street lighting to road rage, drunken driving, improper road designs and few others. People are scared to go out on the road because people are abusing traffic signals, autos driving in the wrong direction, people cutting lanes and lane cutting resulting in very dangerous driving scenario.

How different technology help to reduce the accident rates or slightly help better manage emergencies during accidents.

Smart Helmet

Smart Helmet for bikers even if motorcycle and bicycle it is crucial to wear a helmet and safeguard against head injuries. Smarter helmet also communicates with the other drivers and vehicles. For instance, Helmet having LED lights on it that are connected with the bike handle through Bluetooth and when light turn RED that means breaks are applied on bicycle. When LED on the left or right side of the helmet blinks that means the bicycle making left or right turn. Moreover, we also put a little GPS connection between the smart phone and the helmet which can allow biker to direction on the road.

Most essential helmet is connected to smart phone and in case of a accident, which sensor connected on helmet can sense easily, sends a message to relative or family members configured inside the phone app.

Global Positioning System

The GPS is a “design” of approximately 30 satellites that orbit the Earth and make it possible for people with ground receivers to place their geographic location.

The GPS is owned and operated by the U.S. Department of Defense but is available for general use around the world. 21 GPS satellites and three satellites are in orbit at 10,600 miles over the Earth.

  • Each satellite contains a computer, an atomic clock, and a radio.
  • On the ground, any GPS receiver contains a computer that “triangulates” its own particular position by getting headings from three of the four satellites.
  • If the receiver is also equipped with a show screen that shows a map, the position can be appeared on the map.
  • If you are moving, your receiver may as well be able to calculate your speed and direction of travel and give you evaluated times of entry to specified destination.

The GPS is being used as a part of science to provide information that has never been available before in the amount and degree of accuracy that the GPS makes possible. Scientists are using the GPS to measure the movement of the arctic ice sheets, the Earth’s tectonic plates, and volcanic movement.

Types

  • The GPS L1 band (1575.42 MHz) has turned to be the most essential band for navigation purposes.

  • GPS is transmitting in the L2 band (1227.60 MHz) a remake civil signal known as L2C together with the P(Y) Code and the M-Code.

  • The GPS L5 (1176.45 MHz) signal will be transfer for the first time on board IIF satellites.

Connected Cars & Connected Highways

Nowadays, everyone talks about the connected cars, as per some research, near about 70% of cars coming in the market from Jan 2018 onward.

Once your vehicle is connected to the internet and with you through a mobile app, there can be plethora of information exchange from two ways, which helps in control the road accidents.

Just think once how the connected cars and connected highways help to secure or minimize accidents. As the heavy fog in the winter, recently on the express highways between Delhi & Agra, 50 cars banged into everyone. A highway and car joined with each other could have felt the accident. Firstly, two cars crashed with each other and instantly informed through a central server to every vehicles on the highway about what is the actual accident location. This is due to RFID chip (Radio frequency identification) which is read by RFID reader at the toll gate. It is the system who knows which car is enter on the highway and add them to the warning database, when the car leaves the highway from an exit, then a reader remove it from the system.

One more feature is Auto lock built in the car which avoid over speeding In which if speed goes over 100 KM on a 70 KM lane, the car will steadily slow down the first time, if it do the same again then it will send a warning message to the driver the second time and third time if its happen then result is a car being locked down and will sent a message to the closest patrolling station or cops to control the situation manually.

Conclusion

All of the above, we can see that nowadays, the internet of things is changing our world. It is the vast rapidly growing network of devices. It helps us in many ways in transportation and others. Ratio of accidents is decreased due to Internet of Things. Moreover, cars are connected with internet so it’s easy to go anywhere just set your destination in GPS it will show you the way. At last, Internet of Things makes our life easily and safely as well.

ACKNOWLEGDEMENT

With utmost sincerity, we would like to convey our thankfulness to Deutsche Telecom for giving me the opportunity to do the research on Connected Cars Concept.

We would also take the privilege to express deep sense of gratitude to Margaret Rouse for giving us a brief knowledge about the GPS from Tech Target and encouraging us towards the technology.

We would express our sincere gratitude towards all the teachers and faculty guides for sharing their exceptional knowledge in the domain of Internet of Things, along with the members, who facilitated this learning opportunity for us. Our sincere thank to Gautham Sambaraju for their valuable guidance and direction in successful completion of the report. Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to express our deepest gratitude to all those who have directly or indirectly contributed in the completion of this report.
