The technical issues that the Advanced Vehicle Control Systems (AVCS) Committee of the Intelligent Vehicle Highway Society (IVHS) of America has identified as necessary to improve the performance of the surface transportation system are discussed. AVCSs represent the application of sensors, computers, and electromechanical actuators to provide drivers with warnings of hazards, assistance in controlling their vehicles, or fully automated control of vehicle motions. The constraints under which AVCS enabling technologies must be brought to maturity, such as cost, reliability, fault tolerance, and environmental hardening, combined with the basic performance requirements, are outlined. The enabling technologies for AVCS, subdivided into categories of sensors, communication, computation, electromechanical actuators, software and systems technologies, and special tools and facilities, are discussed. AVCS target products are reviewed.<>
