Virginia News Google’s self-driving car to be in Blacksburg next week

Google’s self-driving car will make an appearance in Blacksburg next week, as Virginia Tech plans to announce a partnership the school has formed with the technology giant.
Tech hasn’t yet announced exactly how it’s involved in the research, but the car will be at the Virginia Tech Smart Road for a media event on Tuesday afternoon. U.S. Reps. Bob Goodlatte, R-6th, and Morgan Griffith, R-9th, will be there and expect to take a test drive, according to a spokeswoman for Goodlatte.
