This paper proposes an ontology modeling approach for assisting vehicle drivers through safety warning messages during time critical situation. Intelligent Driver Assistance System (I-DAS) is a major component of In VANET, which focuses on generating the alert messages based on the context aware parameters such as driving situations, vehicle dynamics, driver activity and environment. The simulation test bed developed using Java framework to generate safety alerts in various driving situations shows the usefulness of this approach. The response time graph for the simulation of context IDAS is depicted and analyzed. The effective performance of the driving scenarios in various modes like day and night for single, 2-way and 4-way road scenario for the best, worst and average cases of simulation had been studied.
