A Staggered-diamond Design For Automated/manual - Hov Highway-to-highway Interchange
- Author(s): Tsao, Jacob
- et al.
This paper proposes a staggered-diamond design for automated connector ramps for an Automated Highway System (AHS). After describing the main features of this design, the paper discusses the constraints on AHS operational design imposed by the requirement for continuous automated highway-to-highway driving. The constraints on AHS evolution due to the same requirement are then discussed.
