OUTLINING A NATIONAL IVHS PROGRAM. A SYNTHESIS DERIVED FROM THE PROJECT REPORTS FOR NCHRP 3-38(1) AND NCTRP 60-1A

This report consists of a synthesis of recommendations for a national Intelligent Vehicle Highway System (IVHS) program derived from two research projects conducted by Castle Rock Consultants of Leesburg, Virginia. NCHRP Project 3-38(1) examined the potential of advanced technology for relieving urban traffic congestion. NCTRP Project 60-1A focused on mass transit and ridesharing in reducing urban traffic congestion and the use of advanced technologies in improving their operations. Following completion of the two projects, and in consideration of the emerging emphasis being given to IVHS, Castle Rock Consultants was asked to synthesize the recommended national programs from each project into a single report. This document is a result of that effort. This report contains a brief description of the development of a National IVHS Program, a detailed appendix covering the program including research, operational testing, standard setting, implementation and ongoing support, and a second appendix which provides a preliminary program schedule with short-term projects and activities receiving the greatest amount of development. The final reports from the two projects are scheduled for publication in the near future in the regular NCHRP and NCTRP report series. This report is being made available from the Transportation Research Board as an unedited research agency report.
