A system architecture for a nationwide intelligent vehicle highway system is the subject of this brief article. An IVHS architecture provides a common set of definitions for user services and defines compatibility standards on how various IVHS components interact. Four contractor teams are preparing national IVHS architectures for Federal Government review in hopes of developing the one plan that will be the national model. The article implies that development of these initial plans is expensive and may foster "de-construction" of IVHS initiatives, noting that the government is moving toward intermodal investments.
