In this paper, a Controller Area Network (CAN) based communication system is presented for collision or accident avoidance. This system can be used in automobiles to provide more safety. CAN architecture has been proposed and implemented using MCP2515. The major advantage of CAN based smart network over the traditional point to point schemes is increased and more flexibility and expandability new features. Various parameters of the car basically speed, distance from the other cars, obstacles like persons and presences of animals detected and measured accurately. A status signal may send to the car driver if any of the desired parameters goes out of range to avoid accidents. The aim of this project is to avoid the collision by detecting obstacles, vehicles using IR or ultrasonic sensors for obstacle avoidance and controlling the vehicle accordingly by using CAN protocol.
