A SIMULATED ROUTE CODE

THE BUREAU OF PUBLIC ROADS AND PHILCO CORPORATION HAVE COOPERATED IN DEVELOPING A MACHINE ADAPTABLE TECHNIQUE FOR THE NON-AMBIGUOUS DESIGNATION OF A VEHICLES EXACT POSITION WITHIN A SYSTEM OF ROADS AS WELL AS A SELECTED ROUTE TO PROCEED TO ANY OTHER POINT IN THE SYSTEM. TO DEMONSTRATE THIS TECHNIQUE, A MANUAL VISUAL EXAMPLE FOR ROUTE FOLLOWING WAS DEVELOPED. IT USES A SIMULATED ROUTE CODE DEVELOPED FOR THE PENTAGON NETWORK, AND A MATRIX TO DIRECT A VEHICLE TO ITS DESTINATION BY A SELECTED ROUTE. THE MATRIX MAY BE USED TO DIRECT THE DRIVER OF A VEHICLE TO ANY SELECTED DESTINATION WITHIN THE MATRIX BY A ROUTE SELECTED ACCORDING TO MINIMUM DISTANCE AND SAFETY OF REQUIRED MANEUVERS. /AUTHOR/
