ISA-UK: intelligent speed adaptation

Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA) is a system by which the vehicle "knows" the permitted or recommended maximum speed for a road. The standard system uses an in-vehicle digital road map onto which speed limits have been coded, combined with a positioning system which could be GPS, i.e. the satellite Global Positioning System, but could also be GPS enhanced with map matching and dead reckoning. The main tasks of the project reported here were to: 1. Investigate car driver behaviour with ISA by means of set of field trials with a voluntary ISA; 2. Study overtaking behaviour with ISA in a driving simulator; 3. Prepare an ISA design for motorcycles and large trucks and to build a demonstrator of each; 4. Investigate the costs and benefits of ISA.
