Abstract: In order to prevent traffic accidents the interest is to find efficient warning systems. The aim o the paper is to present  TWS (Traffic Warning System), a device that signals the presence of special traffic situations. The information is transmitted through the visible light spectrum (VLC) giving useful information to the driver.

Key words: motor vehicle safety, light, communication, traffic, transmitter, receiver
