An Approach for Highway Transportation Systems Research — A Model and Instrumentation 680174
This paper outlines an approach to highway transportation research which considers the interrelationship of the major subsystems. It describes the framework, the variables, surveillance techniques, and new vehicle instrumentation.
A model is described which serves as the basis for field testing and subsequent mathematical analyses. Surveillance systems including instrumented vehicles, ground, aerial, and space platforms are required as components of a real-time system.
A research project, designed to evaluate driver stress, is discussed and sample computer data are shown.
