    Abstract

    The large number of accidents caused by unsuccessful motor vehicle overtaking manoeuvres on roads is a significant problem with much public debate and concerns. In addition, one accident might cause another follow on accident when there is no signalling/reporting of it occurring, thus causing obstructions and further accidents in the vicinity. This can seriously affect the traffic flows, generating traffic jams and sometimes resulting in more unwarranted accidents, which can be avoided with the application of technology. The emergence of wireless ad hoc and sensor technologies and their adoption in vehicular networks can provide smart solutions to mitigate the probability of accidents and avoidance of dangerous traffic flow situations. This paper presents some important concepts for an application development to assist the driver in overtaking manoeuvres with prior knowledge of oncoming traffic, even when the road curvature has blind spots. In order to do that, the application must indicate whether it is safe or not to perform the overtaking manoeuvre. To propose this application, concepts of kinematics techniques are used to model the overtaking manoeuvres and the successful simulation results show this technique to be promising as expounded in this paper.
