In spite of significant forces pushing for an accelerated development of Intelligent Vehicle-Highway Systems (IVHS) in the United States, no formal national program in IVHS is emerging rapidly. It appears that a number of policy issues, both at the macro and at the micro levels, both domestic and international, need to be resolved before IVHS can be put into place in America. The way in which these issues are to be resolved will probably have significant impacts on both the automotive industry and the infrastructure that supports automotive transportation around the world.
