Talking on the device, the Indian Army said that it has got a patent for the Artificial Intelligence (AI) based Accident Prevention System. Explaining further, the Army issued a tweet in which it said that this accident prevention device has been indigenously developed by the Research and Development (R&D) component of the Army.

After successful testing, this device is now being fitted in all the vehicles of the Indian Army. For information, let us tell you that before obtaining the patent, the testing of AI-based accident prevention device was successfully done in the buses of the transport corporation of two states including Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. One special thing about this AI based device is that it can also be fitted in trucks without any hassle.
57 percent of road accidents happen because of this.
When asked about the reasons behind developing the AI based device, Colonel Kuldeep Yadav said that the idea of developing this device came to his mind when he was handling an army unit in Manipur. He told that, while driving in the mountains, the drivers get tired and their eyes used to get affected. Due to this happening, the chances of road accident increased. According to the government figures that have been presented, during the year 2021, a total of 1.54 lakh people have died due to road accidents in the country.
