HIGH COST COULD PUT BRAKES ON NATIONAL IVHS IMPLEMENTATION

The high cost of implementing an intelligent vehicle highway system (IVHS) could leave plans for a national IVHS architecture on the drawing board. During hearings, IVHS supporters urged members of the Oversight Subcommittee of the House Public Works and Transportation Committee, United States House of Representatives, to continue funding IVHS activities, saying that public seed money is important in developmental years to demonstrate cost effectiveness. Sustained funding will develop confidence and national participation by private industry. This article defines IVHS, details subcommittee hearings, and lists the four development teams vying for the opportunity to produce the adopted IVHS architecture.
