EMERGING CONCEPTS AND PRODUCTS FOR INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS. IVHS-IDEA PROGRAM PROGRESS REPORT 1

This report presents a summary of technical projects initiated during the first year of the Innovations Deserving Exploratory Analysis (IDEA) program for Intelligent Vehicle-Highway Systems (IVHS). The IVHS-IDEA Program is jointly supported by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It is managed by the Transportation Research Board (TRB) as part of a broader program that includes highway systems (NCHRP-IDEA) and transit systems (Transit-IDEA). The IVHS-IDEA Program fosters functional discoveries that would provide radically different and new approaches to intelligent transportation systems. The program focuses on new methods, technologies, processes, and systems for application to IVHS. Two types of IVHS-IDEA projects are presented in this report. Type 1 projects evaluate the feasibility of new and unproven concepts for potential application to intelligent transportation systems. The projects are generally funded in the range of $30,000 to $100,000 and are completed within a year. Type 2 projects focus on applied testing and evaluation of new products or results for intelligent transportation systems. The goal of Type 2 projects is to test proven concepts and transfer existing engineering products and conversion technologies that have not yet been tested or applied to IVHS. A large number of IVHS-IDEA projects are cost-shared by proposers or by users of potential IDEA products.
