Abstract: This paper addresses the development efforts towards realization of vehicle to vehicle cooperative collision warning system for ITS. In this intelligent system either the vehicle or the infrastructure can communicate its location or other information to surrounding vehicles or nearby infrastructure for its implications in cooperative driving and vehicle safety deserve closer investigation. Commercial vehicles with multiple radars has the limitation of more false detection as the detection technology is based on ‘ skin’ mode of radar operation and the radar receives its transmitted energy after reflection from the body of the target vehicles. The ‘transponder’ mode of radar operation will definitely improve the false detection leading to collision warning and warning system. The vehicles will be the ‘friends’ to each other by integrating the local radar mounted on each vehicle with vehicular communication. The goals of this paper are twofold: providing an engineering argument of possible functional architectures of such systems and presenting a possible example of the proposed future-trajectory-based design, which estimates and communicates vehicle positions and predicts and processes future trajectories for collision decision making using WiMAX waveforms. The authors have developed automotive WiMAX radar networks for Skin and Transponder mode utilizing the VLSI based advanced development platforms. This paper will highlight the achievements and limitations of the developed model.
