The report provides an examination of the status of automated highway systems evolution and the applicability of this class of transportation to high-speed, intercity service. The report deals with the problem in two principal ways. The first is from an evolutionary point of view; what has been done to date, where can we go in the future, and how do we get there. The second effort involves the hypothecation of a system which would be representative of an AHS if it were actually developed for service. The purpose of this effort was to determine the technological feasibility of a total AHS. Although a few areas of critical research have been identified, AHS is a technically feasible transportation alternative to existing systems. (Author)
