PRECURSOR SYSTEMS ANALYSES OF AUTOMATED HIGHWAY SYSTEMS: CHECK-IN ACTIVITY

This document contains research material for the Automated Highway System (AHS) program. The check-in activity is one of 16 areas addressed as part of the "Precursor Systems Analyses of Automated Highway Systems" study. The objective of this report is to identify major requirements, issues, and risks associated with ensuring that a vehicle and its operator can safely enter the AHS. In addition, the results of this precursor analysis provide insights into the technologies, design, deployment, operation, and practicality of the automated check-in element of an AHS. Special emphasis is placed on evaluating aircraft flight test technology and check approaches analogous to systems for AHS check-in.
