Paper Abstract

Future operational IVHS services and networks promise to transform the implementation of emergency/incident response and management/notification systems. Properly structured systems should improve highway safety, accident morbidity/mortality and incident mitigation with positive impacts on traffic congestion and the environment. Emergency/incident response management support systems should be developed from a systems perspective. This implies an iterative process from fundamental needs, to requirements/specifications to alternative systems architectures and evaluation of operation and functional characteristics with respect to the requirements. The methodology may be extended to other IVHS realms, including MAYDAY (9-1-1) communications, ATIS, etc.
