Smarter Roads for Smarter Cars: July 22 to 25

More sidewalks, more bike lanes, better infrastructure — after Hurricane Sandy, when an entire village burned because the road was impassable, the Department of Transportation is rebuilding. Find out how in the current issue of U.S. 1 as Diccon Hyatt tells about one of those conferences that don’t get advertised, “Driving a Sustainable Environment,” set for  Monday through Thursday, July 22 through 25, at the Transportation Review Board Summer Workshop at the Hyatt Regency in New Brunswick. Among the topics will be “intelligent roads,” like those I’ve seen in Germany. On the autobahn, electronic signs tell the speed limits, which varies according to weather and circumstances. It’s what we need for the “smart cars” of the future.
