Logistics is a process which ensures efficient and cost-effective flow of goods and. In India, the logistics sector is highly unorganized due to a lack of proper infrastructure and inclusion of technology which results in a lack of seamless movement of goods and people from one place to another. Also, with a surge in the number of taxis and trucks in the country due to increase in demand of the logistics sector, the accidents related to drunk driving and late alert of accident to the concerned authorities have drastically increased. In India, more than 60% of annual accidents are caused due to the menace of driving under the influence of alcohol. It is practically untenable for owners of these cab and trucks to keep an account of the activities of drivers and any accidents of these vehicles. The purpose of this research is outlining some of the key challenges faced by the logistics industry and providing a cost-effective and feasible solution for the same. This paper provides a solution called as SMART TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM and makes use of sensors and the IOT technology to track the activities of the drivers and notify the owners to take the right action and uses Computer Vision technology to detect a drowsy driver and alert him.

The system is an accident alert system along with a drunk and drowsy driver detection system that detects the intoxicated level of the drunk driver with high level of certainty and detects any accident to the car and generates a corresponding alert. The system is also capable of detecting a drowsy and sleepy driver using the latest Computer Vision technology. The system detects drunk driver situation initially or during driving and activates the alternate mechanisms for local persons i.e. turning off the ignition if car is not moving along with remote indication to the authorized persons i.e. generating alert to the required authorities. The main aim of the project is to decrease the chances of loss of lives in accident, occurring due to the intoxicated or drowsy state of driver and late alert to the required authorities, hence improving public safety and also making a better system for the logistics companies to track their drivers. Based upon the latest Computer Vision technology and semiconductor gas sensing as well as a sensitive shock detector, the system is cost-effective and reliable. The development cost of the device would be less than INR 3000.
