STUDY OF SYNCHRONOUS LONGITUDINAL GUIDANCE AS APPLIED TO INTERCITY AUTOMATED HIGHWAY NETWORKS

The report documents the results of the Synchronous Longitudinal Guidance (SLG) Study as applied to automated highway networks. Section 1 of the report contains a background of the SLG projects, an introduction to the basic concepts used in SLG, objectives and methods of the study, and conclusions reached as a result of the study. Sections 2 and 3 discuss results of analytical work done to verify various properties of the algorithms used for local vehicle control and for interfacing highway elements within the network. Work done in simulating the allocation algorithm for three networks is summarized in Section 4. A brief comparison between SLG and manual highway design is drawn in Section 5. Finally, Section 6 contains recommendations for further study of the SLG concept. (Author)
