Virginia Tech Transportation Institute

The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) is the largest university-level transportation institute in the United States and operates the Virginia Automated Corridors (VAC) Initiative in partnership with the Virginia Department of Transportation, the Department of Motor Vehicles, Transurban, and HERE Technologies, a leader in automotive mapping technology. The VAC offers automated vehicle developers the opportunity to test their technologies on Virginia roads covering more than 70 miles of interstates and arterials in Northern Virginia, including Interstates 66, 495, and 95, as well as state routes 29 and 50. The corridors also include two test-track environments — the Virginia Smart Road, located on-site at the Transportation Institute, and the VIRginia International Raceway in Southern Virginia.
