Discussed in this paper is a GPS based vehicle ranging scheme to deal with some disadvantages existing in other present systems. These disadvantages include short sensing distance, easily being interfered, and high cost. A design model of a vehicle collision preventing system is then proposed based on this ranging scheme. Each vehicle locates itself and communicates via wireless communications channels with other vehicles in surrounding area. In addition, supersonic distance measurement is employed to enhance the short distance measurement capability and to increase accuracy. Also included in the system design are a LCD display and a buzzer to generate visual and audio alarm information.
