INSTITUTIONAL ISSUES IN ATMS - THE MINNESOTA GUIDESTAR EXPERIENCE
Improving the efficiency of the nation's highways has been one of the key objectives of the IVHS community ever since the application of advanced technology to highway transportation began to receive the attention it is now getting. One of the primary initiatives in the drive to satisfy this goal is to better manage and control the movement of traffic in the typically congested urban highway environment. The pursuit of this goal involves a consideration of numerous technical issues. It is also becoming increasingly apparent that ATMS development will be required to address many complex institutional issues. This paper discusses some of these institutional issues using the Minnesota Guidestar experience as a model.
