Resources and Tools

Connected and automated vehicle (CAV) technologies are rapidly moving from research to reality. Many vehicles already have automated driving systems (ADS) designed to help save lives and prevent injuries, and this technology may lead soon to self-driving vehicles on the road.

MDOT recognizes the safety, mobility, and efficiency benefits of ADS, and is embracing opportunities of collaboration for research, testing and eventual deployment. More
