Now, we have seen the deployment of wireless communication technologies for roads and highways. Recently, considerable research was focused on applying ad hoc wireless networking technology to vehicles on the move. It has been suggested that ad hoc communications can be used to propagate information related to traffic jams and accidents. In our research team, we focus on efficient data exchange for acquiring local traffic information, distributed detection of dangerous vehicles on the road and/or highway and so on. We believe that these research contributes safety and comfortable car society.
