Progress North Texas 2017 Looks at Technology
Automated vehicles, smart traffic signals, and guaranteed travel speeds are among the most exciting topics in transportation. NCTCOG has established a new program area to study automated vehicles and related topics and is working with researchers and area governments to help pave the way for smarter vehicles. While there is tremendous momentum behind vehicle automation, there are many more examples of how we are using technology to reshape the future. Innovation is apparent from smartphone applications that help people navigate the roadway and rail systems to TEXpress Lanes that give people the choice to pay for a smoother ride along select corridors. Progress North Texas 2017: Moving into the Future Using Innovative Transportation Technologies is available at www.nctcog.org/ourregion. It examines how technology is at work in transportation and air quality planning and presents data on how the transportation system continues to meet the needs of the growing Dallas-Fort Worth area.
