Enhancing Road Safety: A Smart Speed Detection System Using IoT Technology
Keywords:Speed Detection, Infra-red Sensor, Blynk Application, Internet of Things
The Malaysian Police Force requires technological advancement to keep up with the highway thugs and illegal racers. The primary objective of this project is to deter unethical activities on the road. Thus, a simple speed sensor detection utilizing an Infra-red (IR) sensor is designed. The project leverages a NodeMCU ESP8266 microcontroller, an IR sensor detector, and Blynk application platform for controlling and monitoring using smart phone. The system operates when a vehicle or object passes the IR sensor. After detection, both Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) display and Blynk application will show the vehicle's speed. If the vehicle exceeds the speed limit, NodeMCU will notify the user's device, alerting them to the speeding vehicle. This innovative system offers several advantages to authorities compared to traditional methods of addressing road rage incidents. It enables prompt action and resolution of cases, ultimately contributing to safer road conditions and improved law enforcement capabilities.
