Previously, we were focused on how to build efficient highways and roads. Over time, the focus shifted to mechanical and automotive engineering, in the pursuit of building faster cars to surmount greater distances. Later on, electronics technology impacted the construction of cars, embedding them with sensors and advanced electronics, making cars more intelligent, sensitive and safe to drive on. Now, innovations made so far in wireless mobile communications and networking technologies are
... hnologies are starting to impact cars, roads, and highways. It will create major economic, social, and global impact through the transformation. In this project, we will implement a system and examine the impact of future intelligent transportation on road safety and emergency services. Intelligent Transportation uses numerous technologies to assist and manage transportation. We will implement cooperative traffic management involving vehicles, roadside infrastructure and wireless sensor network which will interconnect vehicles not only to collect information about themselves and their environment, but they also exchange this information in real time with other nearby vehicles. A key aspect of intelligent transportation systems is to expand the time horizon of information relevant to safety and transportation efficiency by providing driving support systems but also introduce new information sources, and improve its quality. The basis is a collaborative approach, with each vehicle and RSU contributing relevant information, based on their own sensing and on information received from nearby peers and RSUs, vehicles can anticipate, detect, and avoid dangerous or unwanted situations. For example, timely notifications about lane changes, emergency braking, and unsafely approaching vehicles, hazardous locations, dangerous or heavy traffic conditions disseminated by RSUs, locally or within a region with the help of other vehicles. can be highly beneficial.
