Abstract: The vehicle population increases daily which leads towards accidents. So to overcome this issue, Vehicular Ad Hoc Network has come with lot of ideas such as vehicular communication, traffic controlling and navigation. In this project, we are focusing on accident prevention and traffic signal control for ambulance and normal vehicles. To do this, we have implemented a highway and intersection model that manages vehicle mobility. It shows the actual vehicle to vehicle and vehicle to infrastructure communication. This is implemented by modeling the road side unit, traffic control unit, and onboard unit along the roadside in the Network Simulator 2 simulation software. In the simulation, the parameter like end-to-end delay, packet delivery ratio, throughput and packet lost are measured. These parameters ensure efficient communication between the vehicles. This in turn improves the road safety, since the vehicles will be notified about the other upcoming vehicles in their vicinity.
