EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF INTELLIGENT VEHICLE HIGHWAY SYSTEMS FEATURED
              AT SAE TRUCK & BUS MEETING & EXPOSITION
    CHICAGO, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS) is a futuristic project that is now under way in selected cities across America, including Chicago.
    Dr. James Costantino, executive director, IVHS America, spoke about a local project called ADVANCE (Advanced Driver and Vehicle Advisory Navigation Concept) at the SAE Truck & Bus Meeting & Exposition at the O'Hara Exposition Center today.
    "ADVANCE is a five-year, $40 million program launched this summer by Sam Skinner to relieve congestion in the northwestern Chicago suburbs," according to Costantino.
    IVHS is electronics technology that will provide greater mobility and improved safety on the highways -- such things as "smart cars" that display alternate drive routes and electronic toll collection booths. The U.S. government has already approved $100 million for nationwide IVHS research this year and another $200 million for 1992.
    Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems is just one of over 40 topics that will be covered at the SAE meeting, which runs through Thursday. The meeting includes more than 200 technical presentations on subjects such as the effects of the Clean Air Act on fleet operations, new commerical vehicles, alternative fuels and vehicle design, and truck engine emissions.
    A full-scale exposition will run concurrently with the technical program. More than 150 truck and bus OEMs and suppliers will display their products and services. Nine vehicles will also be on display.
