The viability of methods of communicating to and from moving vehicles depends on the availability of inexpensive and reliable electronic components of advanced performance. If suitable components are available, a variety of sophisticated schemes for managing private, commercial, and public transport becomes feasible economically and technically (if not politically); possibilities include the transmission of route or hazard information to vehicles, the extraction of data from vehicles (identity, axle loading, etc.), and two-way communication for public-transport vehicles. This paper surveys the roles which may exist in traffic management for modern solid-state components such as advanced silicon integrated circuits, charge-transfer devices, surface-acoustic-wave structures, and microwave sources. Special emphasis is given to the basic problems of, firstly, establishing localized regions for propagation on a space-division-multiplex basis and, secondly, providing structures which operate, store, and detect complex codes or messages.
