Key features of one automated intelligent vehicle/highway system (IVHS) are outlined, it is shown how core driver decisions are improved, a basic IVHS control system architecture is proposed, and a design of some control subsystems is offered. Some experimental work is summarized. A system that promises a threefold increase in capacity is outlined, and a four-layer hierarchical control architecture that decomposes this problem into more manageable units is proposed. >
