Vehicle collisions at in tersections account for a large percen tage of overall traffic accidents, a good portion of which are fatal. A large number of these accidents can be avoided by a warning system which makes a driver aware of potential collisions on the road, thus allowing the driver enough time to preven t such situations. This pape r presents the design of a prototype intersection collision warning system based on Vehicle Infrastructure Integration (VII). Underlying the system are wireless communications, positioning technology, and information technology that ensure accu rate and timely safety information.
