The number of accidents in Malaysia that increases annually is a severe problem that needs to be addressed aggressively [1]. Of the many factors that cause accidents, the reduced concentration of driver during a driving session is one of the main factors that add up to the number of road accident and this is more so during bad weather such as during rain fall, fog or snow. There is an urgency to develop something to help and increase the safety of the driver by warning the driver of the driving situation ahead. This project addresses this urgency by developing a safety application that is used to alert the driver of road/environment abnormality and spread the information to other drivers nearby. The vehicle to vehicle communication is done by implementing a platform for Vehicle Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs). This networks works by automatically forming networks between vehicles in real time. Currently the communication is done using the standard WiFi network. This project is strictly being developed on the application layer using JAVA. For the next stage of this project, the application can be linked to vehicle sensors and external sensors where the data obtained can be processed and broadcasted to other vehicles.
