Nowadays, transportation users have increased drastically since 2006 compared to 2001. The increase in some ways has contributed many traffic problems such as traffic jam and accidents. Therefore, some kind of system such as an enhanced tool is needed to reduce such problems by designing a digital distance monitoring system. The main orientation of this paper is specifically focused on the accident. The development of the tool could help driver get a sense of how far the car is from an object either it is in front or behind the car. The ultrasonic sensor is located in front of the car in order to detect the object. Then, the signal is sent to the microcontroller which has been programmed using MPLAB software. The microcontroller analyses the signal, sends the command and measure the distant of the object from the vehicle within the specific range of detection in between 1 meter to 5 meters. The data is displayed on the seven segment display. The implementation can provide a new alternative in the safety system and could reduce car accident.
