A side impact collision is also know as a T-bone collision or a broadside collision, and involves one side of a vehicle being impacted by the rear or front of another vehicle. It has been estimated that 25 percent of all car crashes involve a side impact collision. Of those collisions, roughly 27 percent involve passenger vehicle occupant death.
This project is about building a structure installed on the outer body of cars on the side doors that can divert the impact of a side collision to save lives in a vehicle accident. This structure is fitted with the left and right side of the vehicle and when a proximity sensor detects a vehicle approaching with x velocity at y distance from the car, it trigger a mechanical hydraulic system that makes the fitted structure act as a ramp for the incoming vehicle so that it divertes the impact force saving all the people in both vehicles.
