IVHS INSTITUTIONAL ISSUES AND CASE STUDIES. ADVANTAGE I-75 CASE STUDY

The Advantage I-75 project was established as an international public/private partnership to provide a testbed for deploying advanced IVHS technologies designed to increase transport efficiency, improve safety, and enhance mobility along the 2,200-mile Interstate 75. Using the Mainline Automated Clearance System (MACS), trucks equipped with transponders and proper documentation will be able to travel any segment along the Ontario-Florida corridor at mainline speeds with no more than one stop at an enforcement station. The project's development, goals and objectives, management structure, and initiators and champions, as well as the selection and involvement of sponsoring agencies are described in the report, along with a detailed description of the operational field test.
