    • Abstract:
      The Crescent Project element of the HELP Program is a bi-national multi-jurisdictional cooperative research and demonstration initiative involving the public and private sectors in an application of advanced technologies for the creation of an integrated heavy vehicle management system. This initiative is a leading example of the commercial vehicle operations (CVO) aspect of the Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS) concept. Some of the advanced technologies demonstrated in this project include: (1) automatic vehicle identification (AVI); (2) weigh-in-motion (WlM); (3) automatic vehicle classification (AVC); and (4) data communications networks and systems integration. The HELP program, initiated in the early 1980s, consisted of three phases which included assessing the feasibility of the concept, technical studies involving laboratory and field tests, and lastly, a demonstration phase. Perhaps the most significant activity of this project centered on the subject of institutional arrangements, associated with the integration of emerging technologies with current operational policies and practices, within both government and industry sectors.
