ABSTRACT Vehicle accidents are recently increasing at a fast rate and diverse technologies are being introduced to minimized vehicular accidents. This project work provide means of accident prevention system using eye blink sensor and automatic braking system to ensure that the vehicle gradually comes to a halt when drowsiness is detected and the driver fails to respond to the warning signal from the buzzer within the stipulated time. The hazard warning lights of the vehicle are also activated to alert other road users especially drivers behind during the stipulated time before the vehicle comes to a halt. Software package (Proteus) and programming language c + + were used to validate the model of the vehicle accidents prevention system using eye blink sensor and livewire software was used in the circuit design. It was observed from the results that the vehicle accidents prevention system using eye blink sensor with automatic braking system is an effective technology for vehicle accidents prevention due to drowsiness. The design and construction of the vehicle accident prevention using eye blink sensor with automatic breaking system with the aim of solving the problem of inability of the existing system (technology) to come to a halt when drowsiness is detected was successfully implemented. In view of this positive results of this project work, it was recommended that, the Government of Ghana and automobile manufacturers should promote and finance this project for mass production of vehicle accident prevention system by the used of eye blink sensor with automatic breaking system in other to replace the existing technology without the automatic breaking system. Implementing this technology in vehicles will help reduce drowsy related road accidents and hence this project work has relevance. This project work could be better by further studies to improve on driver alertness by using wireless technology to send signals to nearby vehicles when the driver is drowsy instead of the hazard warning lights of the vehicle.
