Abstract: Human history is full with natural and man-made disasters which have caused millions of deaths since. Even in the modern era of science and technology disasters do not cease to exist and human population is still vulnerable to the damages in the form of human deaths, economic and structural losses caused by various types of disasters like flooding, typhoons, earthquakes, etc. There are smaller versions of disasters such as heat waves, icy roads, land sliding, etc. which may not affect geographically vast regions simultaneously but still cause deaths and damages. This study presents a scheme for region specific disaster monitoring with a focus towards on-road safety. The proposed scheme is aimed at monitoring environmental factors using road-intersection gateways, analyzing the data and sharing of information regarding the local situation with on-road vehicles. We present two different communication models for the information dissemination and provide a detailed work domain analysis model for the implementation of the gateway for the proposed scheme.
