Innovation in the Roadway Safety Industry

Find recent updates on the latest innovationsways ATSSA members can get their innovative products to market and provide a resource for qualified products listings throughout the country, and news and resources. More information about how guardrail and barriers, high friction surface treatment, pavement marking, signs, and temporary traffic control relate to highway automation and CAVs is coming soon. Be sure to check back for updates.


Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) and Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs)

For traffic safety, vehicle-to-everything communications is the wireless exchange of critical safety and operational data between vehicles and anything else. The "X" could be roadway infrastructure, other vehicles, roadway workers or other safety and communication devices. ATSSA members are at the forefront of these technologies, and are working with stakeholders across new industries to see these innovations come to life. For more information about ATSSA’s efforts on CAV’s and their interaction with our member products check out the resources below.


Work Zone Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) is the use of a broad range of communications-based information and electronics to enhance transportation. Work Zone ITS is the use of ITS to enhance transportation and improve safety and mobility in and around work zones.
