One of the major causes of lane change accidents is the blind spot region. This region is around the vehicle where the driver is unable to observe and fails to identify any vehicles or objects. There are many detection systems that be used to overcome this problem but it is only available in high end vehicles and not in low end vehicles. The goal of this project is to build a system that would overcome this problem. This system is known as the Blind Spot Detection (BSD) and it utilizes the usage of Arduino as the microcontrollers and it is a wireless system. This system will detect any moving vehicles, or any obstacles that is in the blind spot region. There are three modules in this system, two of them are the detection module which will be place the side of the vehicles at each side. The other module is the centre module which be place at the dashboard of the vehicle. The detection module that will detect any vehicle and transmits data to the centre module. It will process the data and light the warning indicators which be placed at the A-pillars of the vehicle. The prototype will be tested. Firstly, to determine the best position to place the detection module. Secondly, to test the maximum length of ultrasonic ranging. Third, to test the prototype when the vehicle is stationary with another vehicle is moving in the blind spot region. Fourth, to test the prototype when the vehicle is moving at three different speeds. Finally, the time of flight for the ultrasonic sensor will be calculated. Besides that, a survey will be conducted regarding the general public’s opinion about the blind spot region and BSD system. The overall results obtained from the experiments were positive with BSD system detecting objects in the blind spot region and the BSD alerts the driver by turning on the LED lights. The time of flight increase as the distance between the sensor and object increases.
