Part of: Innovative Strategies to Improve Urban Transportation Performance


Technical development in the microcomputer industry continues to accelerate. In the next few years changes in hardware and software will occur which will be at least as dramatic as those seen so far. The question arises, 'Will the transportation profession take advantage of these changes? '. The authors seek to address this question. They first summarize the state of computerization in transportation planning and traffic engineering today. They assess those developments which are likely to occur in the microcomputer industry, and their usefulness to current practice.
