Abstract

The paper presents a brief overview of a methodology by which the cost savings of advanced vehicle monitoring and communication (AVMC) systems in long distance or intercity trucking can be quantified. The model can be used for two purposes: (1) for initial feasibility studies of AVMC systems, and (2) for evaluation of systems that are in place. The model is formulated as an engineering or unit cost model, in which various capital and operating costs are determined on both a before-tax and after-tax basis, before and after introduction of the AVMC system. The model has been applied to various situations, and results indicate that the AVMC systems are beneficial over a wide range of circumstances.
