INTELLIGENT VEHICLE HIGHWAY SYSTEM COMMERCIAL VEHICLE OPERATIONS: PERCEPTIONS, NEEDS, AND CONCERNS OF INDIANA-BASED INTERSTATE MOTOR CARRIERS

This paper highlights results of a comprehensive statewide survey examining Intelligent Vehicle Highway System (IVHS) perceptions, needs, and concerns from the perspective of Indiana-based interstate motor carriers. It was conducted as part of a study to examine institutional issues related to the application of IVHS technologies to commercial vehicle operations (CVO) in Indiana. Specific survey issues included how motor carriers perceive IVHS-CVO concepts would affect their current operations; what data items motor carriers are willing to have electronically stored within automatic vehicle identification (AVI) transponders; what type of weigh station preclearance information storage motor carriers prefer (i.e., centralized data base or data stored within a transponder); how willing motor carriers are to participate in a "Gold Card" precertification process for weigh station preclearance; what type of automatic toll collection system motor carriers prefer (i.e., debit system or credit system); how willing motor carriers are to pay additional tolls to help cover costs of building bypass lanes next to existing toll plazas for AVI-equipped vehicles to automatically pay tolls while operating at mainline speeds; and the degree to which motor carriers believe IVHS-CVO implementation will lead to a level playing field between motor carriers.
