Recent Progress for Intelligent Vehicle/Highway System Development in Taiwan 912829
As one of the newly industrialized countries, Taiwan is moving rapidly toward modernization. Accompanying this high economic growth rate are serious traffic problems. Unfortunately, traditional TSM strategies do not help a lot, and a more advanced traffic management system, which is referred to as IVHS, is thus necessitated. A general description about recent progress for IVHS development in Taiwan is presented. Seven relevant research areas and/or significant on-going transportation projects are included. Based on the understanding of our research capability, four intercorrelated IVHS projects are suggested in the future research directions.
