This project is focused in accidents prevention including advanced electronic systems in a new signposting scene with cooperative technologies or I2V (Infrastructure-to-Vehicle Communication). In particular, it is included in the speed limitation systems or ISA (Intelligent Speed Adaptatn) for which a demonstrator of a dynamic Speed Adaptation System based in speed radio beacon will be validated. Electronics can help to understand the signals and develop this adaptable signalling. Considering the advances in wireless technology, either through wireless sensor networks, WSN, (Wireless Sensor Network) or through more inexpensive technology such as RFID (Radio Frequency Identification), there is the possibility of inform the vehicle-user immediately of the road condition through which it is circulating. It would not be necessary to see the signal on the side to know, for example, the speed limit, braking curves could be calculated, as the later speed limitations would be known beforehand, resulting in a safer and more reliable driving. The smart management of multiple signals that can be received on board is an issue that must be addressed in detail, because it can overwhelm the driver if the signals that are unimportant are not discriminated in every moment of driving. There should be a study on the signalling presentation system and, probably, it should be tested in the driving simulator, where the on-board reception system can be validated.
