Abstract: Vehicular Communication is designed for enhancing road safety and support autonomous driving becoming very popular in the present scenario. The proposed system aims to design a suitable and secured system for overtaking on highways. The main problem faced while driving vehicle on highways is to overtake a larger vehicle on narrow roads, where the driver visibility is limited and it is very risky to overtake from right side as there is a high probability of colliding with the vehicles coming in opposite direction. The proposed system solves the problem by establishing ad-hoc connection in 5G environment with the vehicle to be overtaken. The system consists of a communication unit designed with a controller along with various options which are used to decide when the vehicle can safely overtake. In this way the driver can safely overtake the larger vehicles without any risk of road accidents. The proposed system uses fractal geometry to design the antenna which is used for the vehicle to vehicle communication at 5G frequencies up to 20GHz.
