Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems are currently a high-priority area of research and development in many countries and can make significant improvements in mobility, safety, and productivity of transportation systems by utilizing advanced technologies from electronics, communications, and computer science. There are many research thrust areas that are useful to both IVHS and construction automation. This paper identifies a few common research thrust areas that are applicable to development of automated construction systems. In particular, the following IVHS research areas applicable to construction automation and robotics are discussed: (1) traffic congestion characterization, (2) automated vehicle location, (3) electronic ticketing and automated trip payment, (4) vehicle guidance systems, and (5) safety and human factors
