Intelligent Vehicle-Highway Systems (IVHS) improve the operation of cars and trucks on public roads by combining information technology with road transportation technologies. The basic idea about IVHS are by no means new but a number of converging forces have encouraged significant IVHS development in North America recently. Based on results of a Delphi survey to project realistic future scenarios, both applied and fundamental research agenda are being formulated in a Michigan-based IVHS program to push the IVHStechnologies for advanced motorist information systems and for backup vehicle controls under emergency conditions. The scope of the research agenda includes social/human elements as well as hardware and software technological systems. The Mighigan research program is expected to contribute to the development of IVHS in North America, both technically and institutionally.
