The Vital Federal Role in Meeting the Highway Innovation Imperative
The Federal Highway Administration and the Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office RD&T programs, as required by Congress, are addressing a number of critical gaps not covered by other programs. And they are conducting nationally significant research, but there are compelling policy and operational issues that could justify even greater levels of RD&T investment by the two programs. This new report, from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, details future RD&T suggestions, touching on a variety of issues that include autonomous-vehicle technology, energy and sustainability, growing and changing populations, resilience, goods movement, safety, and equity.
