The Evolution of AHS and Current Vehicle Trends in Light of Aerospace Systems Evolution
Digital electronics, head-up displays, electronic systems to indicate maintenance requirements, two-way digital communications data bus, flat panel displays, vehicle condition monitoring, navigation systems and displays: components of an advanced military or commercial aircraft? or tomorrow’s automobile? The same technological advances being heralded to improve safety, efficiency, and capacity for air travel are slated for use in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), such as telecommunications and computer capabilities linked with satellite technology. There are broad connections between the technological advances made in aerospace and the enabling technologies for ITS. The Automated Highway System (AHS) is one ITS program that will benefit and can learn from advances made in aerospace systems.
