PRECURSOR SYSTEMS ANALYSES OF AUTOMATED HIGHWAY SYSTEM. FINAL REPORT. VOLUME 7: ENTRY/EXIT IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY

This document is Volume 7 of the final report on precursor systems analyses of the Automated Highway System (AHS). It identifies and analyzes the most important issues with the roadway implementation of AHS entry and exit associated functions. The analysis takes a broad systems engineering approach to assure that all entry/exit occasions on the AHS are considered. The top level issues addressed are: the impact of entry and exit strategies and configurations on the overall performance of the AHS; the relative viability of potential entry and exit strategies and physical configurations; and the design parameters and design guidelines for potential entry and exit strategies and configurations. The approach to this analysis consisted of the following major steps: develop detailed descriptions of the representative system configurations to be analyzed; define the sequence of functions for nominal and problem travel on the AHS, particularly the entry and exit; identify entry/exit evaluation criteria; define specific entry/exit types and configurations; map the functional flows onto the entry/exit configurations; perform qualitative analysis of the entry/exit configurations; and perform quantitative analysis of entry/exit configurations as feasible within time and resource limits.
