Abstract

This paper describes the setup for advanced vehicle control systems (AVCS) experiments in the flexible low-cost automated scaled highway (FLASH) laboratory being developed at Virginia Tech. The laboratory is a proposed 1/15th scale hardware working model of Automated Highway Systems (AHS). The vehicles are equipped with ultrasonic sensors for longitudinal guidance. They are controlled by HC11 microprocessor boards, and have wireless two way communication infrastructure for vehicle-highway communication. This paper describes the hardware, software, and design issues for the experiments.
