As technology continues to rapidly evolve, travelers have grown accustomed to and now expect real-time information that will allow them to make informed decisions.

Autonomous vehicles (AV) are vehicles equipped with advanced sensors (radar, LIDAR, cameras, etc.) and computing abilities to perceive surroundings and activate steering, braking, and acceleration actions without operator input. Through the use of AV and CV applications, safety and mobility for all modes of travel will improve.

The connected vehicle initiative uses leading edge technologies to quickly identify roadway hazards and alert drivers. Among others, these technologies include:
