Description: This project will involve the construction of an emergency vehicle detection system that may be used by the hearing impaired. The device will use three subsystems in its detection algorithm. The first subsystem will take advantage of the MIRT (Mobile Infrared Transmitter) used by emergency vehicles to clear intersections. In this system, an infrared transmitter is used to send a signal to a control box at the intersection to initiate an emergency traffic scenario such as setting off an indicator strobe at the intersection and turning the emergency vehicle's traffic light to green. Our device will intercept this signal and use it to initiate our indication system. Since not all emergency vehicles have a MIRT installed, the second part of our system will take advantage of the emergency vehicle's siren. This subsystem will use a microphone and a DSP to sample surrounding noise for sirens. Sirens emit sound in a defined frequency range. By taking the FFT of our microphone pickup, we can calibrate our system to activate when these frequencies our present above a certain threshold. The final subsystem will consist of a GPS receiver that, when used in combination with transmitters on emergency vehicles, can tell the driver the position of oncoming emergency vehicles. This will be especially useful in cross-traffic situations where an emergency vehicle is approaching an intersection from a direction out of the driver's range of sight. A strobe/LCD display will be used that can be mounted on the windshield or on the dashboard to relay emergency information to the driver. Currently, the hearing impaired have to stay constantly alert for emergency vehicles by frequently checking their mirrors. This system will make driving, especially in major cities, much easier.
