This work presents mechanisms enabling driving support, exploring the vehicular network to provide information about the drivers neighborhood. The network is composed by vehicles, traffic signals and fixed stations along the road.

Each car is equipped with a recording camera, a GPS receiver and com- munication modules such as IEEE 802.11p/WAVE, WiFi and 3G/4G, allowing the exchange of data between the various nodes. The data ex- changed is composed by positional data of neighboring vehicles and traffic signals, as well as video images incoming from other vehicles.

The driver can access all the collected data via visual information, on a screen that contains a map of the neighborhood along with the informa- tion available of the nearby nodes.
