Objectives

Within national Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) activities, the long-term planning, research, development, and deployment of the next generation of surface transportation system has not been fully considered. Complex challenges related to traffic congestion, safety and environmental impact are not being adequately addressed and can no longer be solved by traditional highway technologies, or even by deploying mainstream ITS. These challenges threaten to adversely affect the ability of transportation infrastructure operators to provide for the mobility of people and goods. One ITS area that has the potential to significantly alleviate these more complex challenges is Cooperative Vehicle-Highway Automation Systems (CVHAS). Please see www.cvhas.org for more details.

Comments

Active. Study on National Highway Automation is currently being done in Illinois. This Chicago study (Chicago Automated Busway and Chicago Automated Freight Movement study) will look to automate buses and trucks in the Chicago lakefront area. (2/5/02)

Subjects: Energy and Environment Highway Operations, Capacity, and Traffic Control Safety and Human Performance
