Abstract:
The Automated Highway System described here is a transponder (or beacon) based system.(1) Much of the Automated Highway System community has taken the approach of making “Smart Cars” with all forms of complex sensors onboard the vehicle. This system has taken all these complex sensors off the vehicle and has only left the actuators and communications necessary to control the vehicle remotely on the vehicle. In addition, this system has eliminated the need for complex roadside sensors by using cooperation between the vehicle and roadside infrastructure.
