INDUCTIVE RADIO (INRAD) PROJECT MANAGER'S SUMMARY

The Inductive Radio demonstration project was a Caltrans sponsored project to demonstrate the use of short range, two-way, communications between vehicles and the roadway. This is an overview from the project manager's prospective. Inductive Radio (INRAD) was the chosen technology, but the project attempted to focus on function. The microwave technology emerging in automatic toll collection shares functionality with INRAD. Short range, two-way, communications were demonstrated to be useful. It is argued that their implementation is almost inevitable. An argument is given for using one-way communication as location beacons.
