The emergence of Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks has made effective communications between vehicle and infrastructure possible. Such systems enable the provision of many services in the automobile environment, including safety, traffic management and monitoring, and comfort. Moreover, there are many wireless communication technologies that have been developed and exclusively designed for Vehicular Networks to enable the distinct characteristics of such networks to be effectively implemented. Dedicated Short Range Communication is one wireless communication technology, amongst others, that has been developed for this purpose. Intersection collision warning applications have attracted wide attention as a potential way to improve vehicle safety at intersections. Accidents at or near to intersections account for the highest percentage of total accidents rate. In this paper, an investigation of vehicular networks and wireless communication technologies that support such networks is summarized as information about the implementation of potential safety applications. this paper also investigates effective criteria for designing a low-cost intersection collision warning application that will effectively improve vehicle safety at intersections.
