Description/Abstract

Traffic congestion is forecasted to continue growing. Simply building more roads is believed not a solution. Many studies have been made to investigate the application of convoy driving or Automated Highway System (MIS) to release increasingly congested motorway, smooth motorway traffic flow, reduce journal tim: and increase road capacity.

The paper includes the introduction of a convoy driving system, discussions on potential impacts of the convoy driving system and the possibility of using differential GPS system (DGPS) for accurate vehicle locating in convoy driving system.
