Experts handle the various major matters and uncertainties linked to the layout and deployment of automatic street structures (AHS). They speak about new AHS recommendations, expertise, and merits, in addition to institutional, environmental, and social concerns - issues that would have an effect on dramatically the operation of the present road approach from either the automobile and infrastructure issues of view.

11 12 S. SHLADOVER tions. In platooned operations, vehicles are clustered together in groups of up to 20 vehicles, with very short spacings between vehicles within the platoons and long spacings between the platoons. New arrivals to the study of AHS tend to regard platooned operations with considerable skepticism. The purpose of this chapter is to explain the reasoning behind the concept of platooning and the knowledge that we have gained about it in the course of the past 6 years of intensive study.
