Solutions for Automated Driving

Safer roads. Enhanced mobility. Paving the way for automated driving.

Transportation Infrastructure for Automated Driving

As vehicles on the road become smarter and safer—with levels of automation ranging from Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to fully Connected Automated Vehicles (CAVs)—3M™ Connected Roads is driving a transportation evolution by helping you build safer, more efficient roads for the present and the future.

Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) Communication

Enabling Intelligent Infrastructure

Paving the way for connected and automated vehicles.

Automated driving relies on smart, connected infrastructure that communicates critical environmental data and information to the vehicle’s sensors and cameras. We develop enhanced pavement markings and smart retroreflective signs to help enable communication between the road and the vehicle.
