ADVANCE HIGHWAY/VEHICLE PROGRAMS: A TEXAS VIEW. IN: CONFERENCE RECORD OF PAPERS PRESENTED AT THE FIRST VEHICLE NAVIGATION AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS CONFERENCE, TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA - SEPTEMBER 11-13, 1989

Texas is proceeding with a small effort in advanced technologies for the highway and the vehicle. The Texas program is a companion of projects in California, Michigan and Massachusetts. The Texas program is sponsored by the Texas Department of Highways, Federal Highway Administration, and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The focus of the study is on the development of a work plan for future efforts in Texas, maintaining contact with Mobility 2000 committee and the other state's programs, and two technical efforts. The basic objective of the project is to keep Texas placed to take advantage of the latest technology and the best methodologies for the application of these new technologies to highway transportation. The Texas program identifies those aspects of an advanced technology system which yield the greatest benefits to the citizens of the state and that has the greatest potential for both near term and future benefits. The study is coordinated with similar programs in other states, which may evolve into a national effort.
