HUMAN FACTORS DESIGN OF AUTOMATED HIGHWAY SYSTEMS
|•||Improved safety for vehicles in automated lanes,|
|•||Predictable trip times,|
|•||Reduced environmental pollution due to a decrease in fossil fuel consumption and emissions, and|
|•||Reduced stress for those traveling in an automated lane (as compared with manual driving) ( National Automated Highway System Consortium, 1995, pp. 13-14).|
There have been numerous visions or scenarios of a proposed AHS that vary along several dimensions, including the following (see Tsao, Hall, Shladover , Plocher, & Levitan, 1993, for detailed examples of scenarios that vary along these dimensions):
