Automated Transportation Technology

NCTCOG seeks to advance the development and deployment of transportation technologies that will deliver safer and more efficient transportation for the North Texas region. This technology includes vehicle automation, such as autonomous vehicles, and technologies that will provide improved real-time information to drivers and vehicles in North Texas. Through smart use of transportation technology, North Texas may be able to squeeze more value out of its transportation assets, improving the economy and the quality of life in the region.

The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) coordinates with cities, counties and transportation partners to plan for transportation improvements in the future of North Texas.

NCTCOG considers autonomous transportation strategies as part of the long-term transportation strategies that defines a vision for the region's multimodal transportation system.
