Description of Research
Nationally--as a Dwight D. Eisenhower Fellow at the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Turner-Fairbank Research Center in McLean, VA--Dr. Jolibois recently completed a study on possible applications of satellite communications technologies for highway users needs (1993). The study was part of the FHWA Intelligent Vehicles Highway Systems (IVHS) development program. His interests also extend to the relationship between energy consumption in transportation and air pollution. A current study for the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) analyzed the potential impacts of IVHS technologies on air pollution/vehicle emissions of transit bus fleets (1994). Finally, at the international level, Dr. Jolibois has performed research on the management of transportation resources within multisectoral rural development projects in the Caribbean (1993).
