MOBILITY 2000 WORKSHOP ON INTELLIGENT VEHICLES AND HIGHWAY SYSTEMS. ADVANCED VEHICLE CONTROL SYSTEMS. MARCH 19-21, 1990, DALLAS, TEXAS

This section of the workshop proceedings describes Advanced Vehicle Control Systems (AVCS). These are vehicle-and/or roadway-based electro-mechanical and communications devices that enhance the control of vehicles by facilitating and augmenting driver performance and, ultimately, relieving the driver of most tasks on designated, instrumented roadways. Automated roadways will require both vehicle and highway-based equipment and will utilize vehicle-to-vehicle and roadway-to-vehicle communication systems developed in other Intelligent Vehicle Highway System (IVHS) initiatives such as Advanced Driver Information Systems (ADIS) and Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMS). AVCS holds the promise of greatly increasing highway vehicle throughput, speed and safety without major construction of new lanes. This paper provides detailed program plans for AVCS as well as implementation issues. Includes several narrative scenarios of how a typical driver might use the new technologies.
