In becoming a developed country, Malaysian government had built infrastructure, including new highway for easy commute. The travelling time has been shortened as the road is wider and convenience. However, some deficiencies that have to be faced by the drivers such as an accident occur connected with the crosswind. From Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS) in review report 2009, crosswind represented only 0.5% of the total accident cases. The effect of the crosswind is one of the most critical problems connected to the vehicle safety and stability. Conventional windsock is no longer effective in present time to avoid accident happen. Therefore, the general purpose of the Crosswind Detection Monitoring System at Highway is to measure and monitor the speed and direction of crosswind from time to time. An aerovane is a device used to measure wind speed and wind direction. Wind speed is measured using aerovane is more accurate because it measures wind speed parallel to the wind direction. Besides, with the creation of this system, it can give awareness to highway user in the crosswind area with LCD displays the speed and direction of winds and reduce possibility accident in the crosswind area on the highway.
