U.S. Department of Transportation Green Lights $1 Million Award for VTTI Research

VTTI was recently awarded a $1 million add-on to a pre-existing $3 million contract from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The additional funds follow an announcement by the Department of Transportation last month, which will require communicative capabilities in all cars and light trucks on U.S. highways — a regulation that officials have stated they hope to go in effect before January 2017.
The contract concerns work on a technology that VTTI has been associated with for a decade that many of its researchers are more than familiar with.
