Connected Vehicle Technology Research on I-66

(WUSA9) — If you drive I-66 Northern Virginia, you are well-acquainted with gridlock.
But congestion and safety could improve on I-66 and elsewhere, thanks to new connected vehicle technology, Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell cut the ribbon for a new research “test bed” along a four square mile area on I-66 from the Beltway to Nutley and on parallel Routes 50 and 29.
The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute has installed 45 radio devices in the test bed.
