3M™ Connected Roads

Solutions for the Road Ahead

Innovative materials. Advanced technologies. Optimized infrastructure for smarter vehicles.

For over 80 years, 3M has been developing solutions to improve the safety and efficiency of our roads. Now, as human drivers, vehicles with advanced driver assist systems (ADAS), connected and automated vehicles and ultimately self-driving cars share our roads, we present the next evolution of transportation infrastructure solutions.

  • Automated Driving

    As human drivers begin to share our roads with automated vehicles, 3M is leading the way in understanding the interaction between the road and machine vision to enhance infrastructure for both humans and automated systems.

  • Urban Mobility

    The world is moving toward higher-density cities, which creates transportation challenges. As fleets of autonomous vehicles, sometimes called robotaxis, become more common, we’re working to help improve safety for everyone sharing the road.

  • Rural Mobility

    Rural areas present their own mobility challenges; it can be difficult for both automated vehicles and human drivers to stay on the road or react to road signs. We are developing practical solutions that help bring families home safely.

  • Automated Freight

    Automated fleets are currently on the road and expanding every day. They present opportunities for efficiency, cost savings and improved safety. Learn about the unique needs of automated freight and how 3M is addressing those needs with our roadway materials.

Building a Digital Infrastructure

Connecting the Vehicle to the Road

Fueling mobility. Improving safety. Enabling intelligent infrastructure for connected roads.

  • Road Safety

    See our family of roadway products to help you improve traffic safety and mobility today.

  • An overhead view of intersecting highway lanes demonstrates traffic flow.

    Traffic Flow and Mobility

    Improved mobility with smaller lanes, more efficient flow through at intersections and reduced congestion at critical areas.
  • A large, bright stop sign is in the forefront of a rural landscape.

    Redundancy: it's not redundant

    Aviation systems rely on redundancy because lives are at stake—it is equally necessary on roadways. Learn how simple roadway solutions can help enable safer navigation for connected automated vehicles (CAVs) in a complex range of conditions—including inclement weather and variable road surfaces.
