Over the last decade vehicle to vehicle, communication has been in the limelight as it is a crucial aspect of the intelligent transport system. Vehicular ad-hoc networks is a network of vehicles communicating with their neighbors wirelessly. This technology is used to build a distributed network of vehicle and infrastructure (Road Side Unit-RSU) that allows information exchange on a large scale via V2V and V2I communication. This article focuses on improving driver safety and traffic efficiency by exchanging safety and non-safety information such as weather conditions and collision alert messages. The physical experiment involves prototyping of various scenarios using microcontrollers and sensors systems. Each prototype generates a warning message which is communicated wirelessly to the driver.
