Current important research needs whose results will be critical to Environmental Protection Agency's mission in the next two to three decades with regard to a major expansion in the use of telematics, i.e. telecommunications, computer, and information technology, are identified. The potential benefits of telematics to the economy, the environment, and to health and safety are very large and numerous. Benefits will far outweigh the potential social costs. Most of the benefits of telematics are likely in the long run to be provided by the private sector. There are three classes of meta-impacts which would result from the large-scale, pervasive use of telematics in American society, each of which could, in itself, have far more important environmental impacts than any other effects. Primary and secondary research needs are defined with regard to these and other risks and opportunities.
