KYTC'sStrategy for Connected & Automated Vehicles
Transformations in the automotive industry that once seemed distant have arrived. Electric vehicles are gaining popularity, while connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) are increasingly common. Practically every new vehicle sold in the US is equipped with Advanced Assisted Driver Systems (ADAS) technologies, such as lane keeping assist, radar-adapted cruise control, forward collision warnings, and automatic emergency braking. Some vehicles even partially automate driving tasks. As these technologies are now a fixture of our transportation landscape, Kentucky’s infrastructure must be able to safely accommodate vehicles equipped with them. Every day, KYTC’s CAV Working Group engages the agency’s partners to develop and implement strategies that will ensure the state’s roads, highways, and bridges are CAV ready.
