Recent years have seen the rapid development of advanced vehicle control and safety systems (AVCSS), dedicated to improving capacity and safety, particularly on multilane highways, by modifying driver behaviour, or introducing a degree of vehicle control. The extent and scale of these activities has resulted in many overlapping targets and approaches that have not been fully reconciled. This paper sets out to help develop a common understanding by: (1) reviewing the current state of the art of this subject in the European Union (EU) and the USA (2) assessing the potential benefits/dis-benefits of such systems and (3) assessing the barriers remaining before these systems may generally be implemented.
