IN SEARCH OF STANDARDS
In this editorial, the author questions the need for standards at this early stage in the evolution of the intelligent vehicle highway systems (IVHS) industry. The author suggests an observation period during which standards committees would observe all operational systems, noting performance, features, integration capability, compatibility with the existing infrastructure, feasibility for other applications, and system costs. The shift from applied standards to a process of observation would foster competition at an early stage and yield a real standard sooner. The author estimates that by mid-1996, focus can shift to refining and codifying what will then be the emerged standard.
