System to prevent people from using mobile phones while driving
In order to prevent poeple from using mobile phones while driving, Divyam suggests to place touch sensors on the gear lever and the steering. This means that both the hands need to be either on the steering or onthe steering and the gear lever. If anytime, the driver’s hand is not on either steering or gear lever (for more than designated seconds), the system will infer that either s/he is using a mobile phone or not carefully handling the steering. Based on this, the system may react, which can be pre programmed. This reaction,as per the programming, may be slowing down the vehicle and bringing it to a halt after some delay, moving to side by giving indicator or simply giving an alert alarm to the driver.
