This study examines the interface between state and regulatory agencies and commercial vehicle
operators regarding the application of electronic technology.
The various processes followed by the state agencies are documented. In addition, a survey of both
freight and passenger commercial vehicle operators (CVO) is analyzed. Significant findings are that
CVOs are capable of exchanging information with the state electronically although formal EDI methods
appear somewhat distant. A significant portion of CVOs are also prepared to adopt basic IVHS
technology which would allow trucks to bypass weigh stations. A summary of barriers to the
widespread adoption of these technologies is also included as is a literature review.
