PLANNING THE 1997 PROOF OF TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY DEMONSTRATION FOR THE UNITED STATES AUTOMATED HIGHWAY SYSTEM PROGRAM

In 1997, the National Automated Highway System Consortium (NAHSC) must conduct a Proof-of-Technical-Feasibility Demonstration required by the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act. This demonstration will be a full-scale, real-time exhibition integrating the latest technological achievements of the core and associate members of the NAHSC, demonstrating the potential feasibility of a fully automated highway system. This paper describes the goals and objectives of the demonstration, the concepts to be demonstrated and under what scenarios, the role of spin-off technologies, and presentation methods under consideration. Details of the candidate concept selection and validation process are presented, along with a program schedule. The synthesis of the results of focus groups, public forums, and workshops soliciting input for demonstration content are reviewed. The location of the demonstration and the status of the infrastructure modifications and facility construction are also discussed.
