Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) is a new field of study started from the mid of 1980s. It emerged most of the high technology and improvements in information system, computer science, mathematical models, communication systems, sensors, and robotic mechanism inside an Intelligent Vehicle (IV). Inter-Vehicle Communication (IVC) is the communication system within the ITS which enables the Vehicle to share information between each other in many aspects such as, current car condition, accident ahead, pre-accident alert and others. The main focus here is to construct a fuzzy controller to determine the current direction, current velocity of the vehicle and the road condition using Infrared Sensor and CMOS Camera then control the vehicle to stay within the road in some road conditions. The purpose of using the fuzzy controller is due to the highly reliable, efficiency and low complexity of the controller compare with conventional controller. Using the vehicle controlling system, we can construct a safety system to avoid any collision to the obstacle ahead and thus accident can be avoided.
