Implementing IVHS Technology: The ADVANTAGE I-75 Approach 912777
ADVANTAGE I-75 focuses on implementation of Intelligent Vehicle/Highway System (IVHS) technologies and on the processes whereby technological advancements are assimilated into the operational setting. ADVANTAGE I-75 represents a partnership of public and private interests in the I-75 corridor. Its goal is to reduce congestion, increase efficiency, and enhance safety of motorists and other users of I-75 and its connections into Canada through the application of advanced highway and vehicle technologies. Currently being considered as the inaugural project is an application of automatic vehicle identification (AVI) technology designed to facilitate motor-carrier operations by allowing transponder-equipped and properly documented trucks to travel any segment along the entire length of I-75 at mainline speeds with minimal stopping at enforcement stations.
