Abstract: This paper describes a fault tree analysis of an automated freeway. The design is characterized by extreme emphasis on vehicle-borne intelligence, and by the presence of a multiplicity of automated lanes. The system is platooned. At the end of the paper there is a brief discussion of the relative merits of vehicle-based and infrastructure -based intelligence, mainly from the viewpoint of safety.
