The ADVANCE operational field test began with preliminary studies in the late 1980s. This test involves the building of a system that can give drivers optimal driving routes that avoid traffic congestion conditions. The field test will recruit up to 5000 local drivers who will have a special Motorist Navigation Aid installed in their own cars at no cost to the volunteer. Project documentation was reviewed in order to understand the project's history, milestones, and accomplishments. Section II of this report describes key aspects of the ADVANCE project. These include the project's history, goals and objectives, and descriptions of the partnerships and participants. Specifics regarding the operational field test, such as how ADVANCE works, the use of volunteer local drivers, and methods for funding, are also provided.
