Abstract – Automobile system plays a vital role in our day to day life. We are implementing such a system to prevent the accidents. There are different types of accidents in automobiles, one such is capsizing. We have developed a system to avoid such scenario. This system has an EPC (Electronic Power Control) that is programmed and it senses the scenario and apply possible maneuver’s to retain the original position of the vehicle and prevent lives. There is an already existing system called anti-roll bar which keeps the car’s body from rolling in sharp turn. The sway bar[1] pushes the car down by the force of outer wheel. ESC (Electronic Stability Control) improves vehicle’s stability. Braking is applied to the wheels individually. The main drawback in the existing system is that the anti-roll bar and ESC won’t work when the inner wheel loses its friction and it starts to lifts. Whereas the system we proposed using EPC can able to retain the vehicle to its original position.
