Recent worldwide developments concerning the use of vehicle detection for wireless large-scale data collection and implementation of advanced traffic control and management schemes such as vehicle guidance/navigation are briefly discussed, and the system developed in the US, Autoscope, is described. Early work on Autoscope, leading to its present advantages over other emerging devices, and recent progress, such as preproduction line prototype development, field testing, and plans for extensive field validation and verification, are examined. The aforementioned plans include two large demonstration projects recently initiated in Minneapolis. In the first project, Autoscope will be used for incident detection over a section of Interstate 394. The second project involves implementation of the machine vision system at a signalized intersection.<>
