Among the most severe crash scenarios are those caused by driver’s decisions to manoeuvre the vehicle to the adjacent lanes. In most scenarios, drivers’ intentionally change lanes to take over another slower vehicle and preserving the current vehicle speed especially on highway road. The decision may be fatal for drivers of incoming or approaching vehicles which are not aware of the intention and fail to reduce their vehicle speed to avoid lane change collision. Hence, this study proposes a lane change decision aid and warning system which aims to support the driver’s decision prior to performing the lane change on highway road where vehicles are travelling in a single direction. The system implements vehicle-to-vehicle communication (V2V) via long-range (LoRa) communication technology to alert the host vehicle of approaching vehicles and warns the approaching vehicle when a host vehicle intends to change lane. Visual and audible warning will be triggered as precaution mechanism for both host and approaching vehicle drivers. Experiments shows that V2V using LoRa can provide contextual information which are useful to assist drivers in deciding whether to change lane or not on highway use case settings.
