Vehicle/Highway Automation: Policy Issues and Strategies in California 891721
One of the main options still open to solve the urban congestion problem is the incremental introduction of Intelligent Vehicle/Highway System Technology. This technology could provide longitudinal and lateral control of vehicles for much higher capacity and improved safety.
This major change in the transportation system requires understanding of the major policy questions, and the elimination of the institutional, human factors, internal and external barriers to development and deployment of this vehicle/highway technology. These efforts must proceed on a parallel track with the development of the technology if success is to be achieved.
