Inter vehicle communication (IVC) attracts a great attention by all the possible stakeholders namely: the car manufacturers, researchers, scientists, policy makers and public to create a safer driving environment. It can enhance the capability for the driver to make the decision properly and hence improve road safety and efficiency. Currently, there are different aspects of focus on the IVC technologies in the market namely on securing a safe and error free communication environment, technology deployment cost and state-of-the-art sensors. However, due to different protocol and standards, technology deployment cost, reliability and security, the IVC project were to left at the laboratory and ideal environment testing. This paper was to focus on leverage various sensors namely IR sensors, active RFID and CMOS Camera to detect, pre-inform, signal and inform the drivers over road condition and the coordinate of the nearby car. It involved two parameters which are nearby car's driver notification and driver assistance. This simulation detected the white line beside the road and informed the driver on the road condition. The data was processed in digital form and informed the car driver in form of increase beeping frequency, text display and gentle voice reminder. In the future, this system focuses on immediate capture the image before accident happen and through the GSM 3G standards to send the image contained the location of the car to the nearby paramedic team and the authority to dispatch the team in no time.
