ABSTRACT

In automobiles, safety considered as a key thing while designing. The vehicle frontal structure has a bumper, structural parts, which resist and reduces damages due to vehicle frontal crashes and ensures safety by absorbing the impact. The Pneumatics plays a major role in the field of automation and actuation control techniques. The aim is to design and fabricate an automated pneumatic based vehicle bumper system that uses a sensor with a pneumatic operated bumper in order to avoid car dents and scratches. This system incorporated with an IR transmitter and Receiver circuit, Control Unit, Pneumatic bumper system. The IR sensor senses the obstacle, which approaches the vehicle. When there is any obstacle closer to the vehicle (within 2-3 feet), the control signal is given to the electronic circuit which actuates the bumper automatically to absorb the impact and stopping it from coming too close to the vehicle body. This prevents vehicle damage and ensures the safety of the inmates. This system only actuated when the vehicle speed is above 30-40 km/hr. This vehicle speed sensed by the proximity sensor and monitored continuously, this signal given to the control unit, and it actuates the pneumatic bumper system accordingly.
