INTELLIGENT VEHICLE-HIGHWAY SYSTEMS (IVHS): ECONOMICS AND ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

This paper considers the environmental impacts of IVHS from an economic perspective. It discusses the potential public and private benefits of IVHS technologies and the role of the public sector in the development of smart cars, smart streets and smart transit. It concludes that some IVHS technologies can promote technological efficiency but that economic efficiency requires the use of policies that target the externality costs associated with automobile use.
