The use of Electronic Stability Control (ESC) in automobiles has become quite popular in the last decade and a number of research activities have been conducted for its further improvement. The use of these complex systems has reduced the number of accidents reported on highways and expressways around the world. The adaptive front lighting system has also undergone extensive research in the past decade and has proved very effective in increasing the stability of the vehicle while driving. A large part of literature available in this area enlightens about the effectiveness of ESC in situations where there is a risk of crash. In this paper, ESC and adaptive front lighting system have been implemented on a microcontroller to bring out the working of these complex systems. The model presented in this paper may be fabricated at a very low cost. It may also be incorporated in vehicles lacking this beneficial technology with minor modification.
