A COMPREHENSIVE FIELD TEST AND EVALUATION OF AN ELECTRONIC SIGNPOST AVM SYSTEM. VOLUME II. APPENDIX

The application of Automatic Vehicle Monitoring (AVM) to enhance the management of mobile resources has, in recent years, become a subject of continued interest to all types of fleet vehicle operations. This report covers the activities of Phase I which involved the installation and test of a HI3 AVM System in the City of Philadelphia during the winter of 1976-1977. These tests represent the most extensive tests ever performed on an AVM system which can locate vehicles which operate either as fixed-route vehicles (transit) or as random-route vehicles (police, para-transit, taxi, etc.). Volume I of this report contains a description of all test configurations, test procedures, location algorithms, data processing, and test results. This Appendix contains the test log sheets, test data and detailed data processing results corresponding to all Phase I tests. Section 2 of this Appendix is an executive summary of the Phase I program. Section 3 contains pertinent random-route data and data processing results. Section 4 contains fixed-route data and data processing results. (Portions of this document are not fully legible)
