Abstract -
This paper presents a novel approach to increase the safety of road travel using the concept of wireless sensor networks for intelligent transportation systems (ITS). Safety of road travel can be increased if vehicles can be made to form groups for mutual interaction with each other. With the number of sensors available on vehicles increasing, a need has arisen to make collaborative use of the information collected by individual vehicles to form an enhanced data set to improve the inter-vehicle safety features. We discuss how a group of vehicles can form a mobile ad hoc sensor network and exchange data sensed by the on-board sensors. The fusion of these data could give a better understanding of the surrounding traffic.Transportation information collection and communication plays a key role in Intelligent Transportation System (ITS). Unfortunately, most conventional ITSs can only detect the vehicle in a fixed position, and their communication cables and power cables elevate the cost of construction and maintenance. Because of the advantages of the wireless sensor network (WSN) such as low power consumption, wireless distribution, and flexibility without cable restrictions., the usage of WSN in ITSs is expected to be able to overcome the above difficulties.Such networks are often deployed in resource-constrained environments, for instance with battery operated nodes running untethered. These constraints dictate that sensor network troubles are the best approached in a holistic manner, by jointly considering the physical, networking, and application layers and making major design trade-offs across the layers.
