Cars talking to cars. Cars talking to traffic signals. The future is now. Connected Vehicle Technology has arrived.
The Infrastructure Automotive Technology Laboratory (iATL) is the first facility in the world where automakers and transportation infrastructure manufacturers can imagine, create and test technology and applications for connected vehicles to communicate with traffic signals and other smart roadside traffic control equipment.
The iATL is a private-sector led and funded initiative designed to help accelerate the deployment of connected vehicle technology by bringing together the various industry sectors to create applications that improve safety on the nation’s roadways.
Another unique feature of the iATL is that automakers can test safety applications in real-world conditions in the streets of Alpharetta which operates the first large-scale deployment of connected vehicle infrastructure technology.
State and regional representatives, along with industry leaders, attended the Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting in Alpharetta, GA on January 10, 2020. As part of the “TravelSafely with Bryan Mulligan” series, Business RadioX was on site to interview many of the featured speakers and panelists.
