VANET Based Communication for Emergency Vehicles

Supriya Bhosale, Prof. N. A. Dhawas, Ashwini Burkul


Recently, researchers have been active in Intelligent Transport System (ITS) development, especially connecting vehicles each other using the Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs).VANETs are distributed, self-organizing communication networks built up by moving vehicles, and are thus characterized by very high mobility and limited degrees of freedom in movement patterns. VANETs are an emerging research area, currently research being focused not only on providing potential applications for such type of networks, but also on providing services for emergency vehicle. We introduce a novel architecture for certain vehicles such as ambulance, fire service vans, police patrols need to be given a high priority in our envisioned network architecture, as their requirements are crucial during emergency situations. The traditional siren, they could use radio communication to warn other vehicles or to preempt traffic lights. We design architecture for an emergency vehicle communication. In VANET, vehicles uses the inter vehicle communication but, also involve roadside infrastructure like traffic lights. In our system other vehicles are warn of an approaching emergency vehicle. They also receive the detail information about the emergency vehicle and other route information. By receiving detail information, timely and correct action taken by the driver is possible, such application saves the valuable time and lives.
