Vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANET) belonging to family of ad-hoc uses IEEE 802.11p standard which have received considerable attention in many vehicular projects and industry groups. VANETs are a special kind of mobile ad-hoc networks where wireless-equipped (road-side) vehicles form a network with no additional infrastructure. While many communication scenarios exist for these networks, In VANET project focuses only on the application to improve vehicular safety by taking into account the physiological and ecological context-aware / sensitive parameters to increase driver convenience. The aim of this research work is to focus on design of a middleware architectural model for providing safety in VANET. Even though a number of passive safety approaches exist, incorporating active safety (intelligence) is challenging part of this work. This research paper discusses on design and functionality of the model, with simulated results.
