We’re not just thinking about autonomous vehicles. We’re driving them.
In a thriving sector, companies at the Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center are creating an autonomous vehicle ecosystem that will transform the industry and the future of transportation. It started with the Smart Road right here in Southwest Virginia and now extends to household names.
Autonomous and Drone Innovation
Global leaders like TORC and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute are helping get us where we need to be in more streamlined and innovative ways. In addition, drone technology is transforming industries and changing how companies do business.
Regional Growth Opportunities
The proximity of two major interstates — I-81 and I-77 — makes it easy to see this technology in action and conduct real-time research. Plus, there’s a major research university with a top-notch engineering program and wide talent pool right next door to the research park.
