This paper proposes new roadside sensors technologies for location-aware service to drivers in real-time. Our target service is warning information alarm services in a vehicle about obstacles and pedestrian in dangerous situation for approaching drivers. For this services, we are installed some kind of roadside traffic sensors which have abilities about classification and positioning of road objects, such as a vehicle, a pedestrian, and obstacles in a street. In this paper, we describe the service framework and the results of an implementation at road environment about traffic sensors. This suggested sensing system should help in improved system operation with better road-awareness service, traffic monitoring, detection and development of new methods.
