Motorist aid systems (MAS's) currently being built under a state legislated program in California are fully exploiting the benefits of microprocessor technology. This technology is being used in the call box units and in control centers for the operation and maintenance of these systems. Modern communications networks used as motorist aid system backbones provide digital control features that complement microprocessor use in call boxes and control centers. This technology has contributed to the solution of operational problems that plagued earlier generation motorist aid systems installed prior to 1985.
