Road Safety and Inter-vehicular Surveillance using V2V Communication
Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication is a promising technology that can enhance road safety and traffic management. This project aims to develop a V2V communication system using ZigBee wireless technology and sensors to improve overtaking safety, overspeed detection and penalty system to prevent accidents. The system consists of a ZigBee wireless communication module and a set of sensors installed in each vehicle for establishing V2V communication between vehicles, allowing them to exchange real-time data. Sensors such as ultrasonic sensors and speed sensors are used to gather information about the surrounding vehicles and the speed of the host vehicle. Arduino is used for processing the sensor data and controlling the communication module, while NodeMCU is used to establish communication between the Arduino and the Blynk app, providing a user-friendly interface for monitoring and controlling the system. The system detects overtaking maneuvers by analyzing the distance and speed of the surrounding vehicles. When an overtaking maneuver is detected, the system sends an alert signal to the overtaken vehicle using Zigbee communication. The overtaken vehicle receives the alert and can take appropriate actions to avoid any potential collision. Additionally, an overspeed detection system is implemented using speed sensors, and if the host vehicle exceeds the speed limit, a penalty system is activated to impose a penalty on the driver. The overspeed information is communicated to the front vehicle using NodeMCU and Zigbee This project contributes to the field of intelligent transportation systems by leveraging V2V communication and IoT technologies to improve road safety and reduce accidents.
