Evaluation plays an important role in the development of credible information on intelligent vehicle-highway system (IVHS) performance. In December 1992, a national workshop was held to review the state-of-the -art in IVHS evaluation and to develop recommendations for future assessment activities. A key outcome of this workshop was development of twelve recommendations for delineating the evaluation process. This paper summarizes each of these twelve points. Taken together, they suggest an IVHS evaluation process which is decision-oriented, comprehensive, and scientific, yet sufficiently adaptable to be carried out in a timely manner.
