ACCIDENT INFORMATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM WITH I-REPORT FACILITIES

ACCIDENT INFORMATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEM WITH I-REPORT FACILITIES

ABSTRACT

This project is an accident information management system with i-report facilities. Accident information is necessary as accident rate has increased tremendously and lives and properties are destroyed every day in Nigeria by road accidents. In other to reduce its reoccurrence, proper documentation of accident information is necessary. An accident information system enables researchers, government and insurance companies who are interested in accident data to collect data from the database for decision making. The proposed system is a client server system that enables a person to sent an eye witness report to the server (at Federal Road Safety Corp Headquarters) on an accident using a mobile phone and facilitates quick response to accident scene by FRSC thus providing an approximately accurate accident data capturing. Available Mobile Technologies and Object Oriented Analysis and Design Methodology were used in evaluating the system to help improve the current process. The system was designed and implemented using PHP and HTML as front-end and Database Management System (DBMS) as back-end. The system improved performance by facilitating quick response time to accident scene and providing real time data capturing.
