This paper details an embedded system to detect factors which affect the passenger’s comfort in car, due to driver’s reckless driving skills. The system uses an accelerometer, an alcohol sensor, a temperature sensor support, along with global positioning system (GPS) interface with microSD card storage. An appropriate algorithm is used to detect if lateral and longitudinal acceleration of vehicle peaks over the threshold value out of comfort range. Thus rude driving styles and skills, bumps, holes, defects on pavements are detected. The alcoholic state of the driver is also detected. The alcoholic state leads to lower the passenger’s comfort. The geographic location of reckless driving event or alcoholic state of driver is stored into microSD card. Also, the system detects the road unevenness, based on the analysis of collected data.
