Mobility 2000 was essential in mobilizing support for a national IVHS
effort, determining a conceptual definition for IVHS
, and promoting the formation of IVHS
America (now called the Intelligent Transportation Society of America, or ITS America), a Utilized Federal Advisory Committee to USDOT.

produces dedicated short-range communication (DSRC) devices used by highway, toll, turnpike, tunnel and bridge authorities.
, MVHS, and FLVS personnel confirm that these are not isolated success stories.

The damaging provision would preempt state and local authority to manage its public highway rights-of-way because it exempts the private IVHS
provider from rights-of-way laws and regulation, except for highway safety.
Unfortunately, industry pushed a bit too aggressively into the arena of IVHS
, hoping to supply a huge assortment of high-tech systems for existing vehicles and an aging American highway system without addressing the system's critical problems.

The authors state that because this IVHS
program will be the major program for the U.
systems use microwave signals to communicate with the vehicles and between highway gantry or verge-mounted transceivers.
The Department of Transportation is currently spending hundreds of millions of dollars developing IVHS
The recent efforts of implementing a $600 million Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS
) program to rebuild the nation's transportation infrastructure come six years after European nations deployed an $800 million IVHS
R&D program, and Japan has pursued technologies for advanced traffic management since the 1970s.
Over the next 20 years, IVHS
participants and their foreign counterparts will spend more than $450 billion in R&D and test development," says William Spreitzer, technical director of the IVHS
program office at the General Motors R&D Center, Warren, MI.
