Next, we’ll hear a recording of a virtual event called Automated and Connected Vehicles: A Glimpse at the Vehicle of the Future. What once seemed like pure science-fiction – the self-driving vehicle – is now on the brink of becoming everyday reality. In this recording, Amanda Hamm, the Connected and Automated Vehicle Program Manager with the Virginia Department of Transportation, and Marty Miller, a Research Associate in Advanced Vehicle Systems and Interfaces at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, talk about the vehicle technology of the future. Where is the technology at? What is the difference between automated and connected vehicles? How in theory does it work and how will this technology affect our lives? Buckle up for a trip to the future!
