This paper provides a view about the current status of wireless and mobile technology, summarizes their current state of development and describes the additional sources and guides us for the application of this blue tooth technology in avoiding accidents in our daily transport. SAFAR can be improved if vehicles can be made to form groups for communicating data among themselves. The Bluetooth protocol can be used for communication among vehicles equipped with Bluetooth devices. This work presents an approach to increase the safety of road travel using the concepts of wireless sensor networks and the Bluetooth protocol. We discuss how vehicles can form mobile ad-hoc networks and exchange data sensed by the on-board sensors. The fusion of these data could give a better understanding of the surrounding traffic conditions. The feasibility of using Bluetooth for data exchange among vehicles is evaluated. Coverage area and probability of detection plots for isotropic and non-isotropic sensors are analysed to study their use to avoid potential dangerous situations in traffic. As the simulation results show, Bluetooth and sensor networks can be used collaboratively to increase the safety of road travel.
