Bus Rapid Transit IVI Lane Assist Technology Requirements

. The objective of this project is to identify requirements for the deployment of lane assist technologies on transit vehicles. This Intelligent Vehicle Initiative (IVI) project continues the FY 2001 effort to research bus rapid transit (BRT) system requirements for lane assistance technology that support transit operations in unique environments, such as narrow lanes. The technology stems from research on intelligent vehicles and automated highway systems. This project will develop a set of guidelines based on the BRT community needs, the technology currently available, and the human factors requirements for safe implementation of these systems. The FY 2002 funding is the second part of an overall $400,000 program. Project is funded under the DOT National ITS Program.
