Abstract

Automated Highway Systems (AHS) have the potential for a large highway capacity gain without requiring significant right-of-way acquisition. However, it is the most technology-intensive component of ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems), and its deployment could be costly. In this high-yield but high-risk environment, it is particularly important to identify the critical issues, technical or not, that need to be resolved to ensure timely and efficient deployment of AHS.
