The Communications Committee (A3A01) of the Transportation Research Board sponsored a Communications Standards Workshop on June 20 and 21, 1990, in Los Angeles to address the issue of Intelligent Vehicle Highway System (IVHS) standards. This Circular briefly describes the workshop objectives, presentations, and working groups' topics, then presents in greater detail the workshop findings. This material is organized as follows: Specific Research Needs (Working Group 1); International Compatibility (Working Group 2); Commonality and Interoperability (Working Group 3); Content and Format (Working Group 4); and Processes for Developing Standards (Working Group 5). The problem statements for each working group are ranked in decreasing order of priority. Included at the end of this document is a list of workshop attendees (Appendix A), the workshop agenda (Appendix B), the IVHS glossary (Appendix C), and an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) reference model for Open System Interconnection (OSI) (Appendx D) which was identified by this workshop as an appropriate framework for defining IVHS communications standards.
