is geographically located in both Europe and Asia with the bridges connecting the two continents acting as a major bottle- neck for travelers. While the number of vehicles with


the required registration for driving in Istanbul is around 24,000, the figure for car ownership had grown to around 3m by 20122


. Due to these growing numbers,


traffic management has emerged as a crucial duty for the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM). Hence for this purpose, dedicated units, Traffic Control Center (TKM) and Disaster Coordination Center (AKOM), have been established for regulating the traffic and for intervening in emergencies. By having the control of approximately

1900 signalized intersections in Istanbul, IMM intends to take this advantage a step forward and exchange this infra- structure data with vehicles and travelers to bring a preventative approach to prob- able accidents and occasions and ensure traffic safety. In addition to this, vari- ous Research and Development (R&D) groups and local authorities are being encouraged to get involved in projects that would not only offer state of the art technologies but also be of great benefit to the public. At this point, since collec- tion of data from the field and centraliz- ing it is a very challenging task, localized solutions involving Vehicle to anything (V2X) communication systems play a predominant and essential role in the context. Therefore, an R&D study is to
