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.
