Cardinal Conversation: 20 years of research on the Smart Road

The Smart Road, run by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute in Blacksburg, has been a national center for traffic safety research for two decades.

Now it's generating data that will be used to perfect autonomous driving technology.

Tad Dickens of Cardinal News visited the Smart Road recently and talked about it with Fred Echols.

Cardinal News is a non-profit, independent, online news organization covering Southwest and Southside Virginia.
