In today's world, traffic safety is a major problem. Traffic accidents result in more than half a million casualties each year and are associated with serious injuries and extensive material losses. Therefore, special attention is given to those technologies that can reduce the number and severity of road events. Inter-vehicle communication (IVC) and vehicle to road communication (VRC) are considered to have extensive potential for the development of efficient safety systems installed in vehicles. This paper proposes a novel, safety-oriented communication platform dedicated to supporting the exchange of safety-relevant information between traffic participants. The vehicular communication platform (VCP) aims to support a specific vehicular communication mechanism previously designed by the authors and briefly presented in the paper.
