- et al.
The research findings presented in this report deal with the modeling, simulation and performance evaluation of fully automated highway systems ( AHS). The report begins with a brief reconstruction of the history of the AHS concept, and a particular AHS proposal that has been intensely studied in PATH. The next section summarizes the principal findings of AHS performance. This is followed by an overview of the simulation program SmartPath. An outline of the current work on SmartPath and plans for the immediate future are given. This section also proposes an object oriented distributed software environment that would include SmartPath and other tools and data.
