Driverless car demos coming to Fairfax

Fairfax County is the test ground for driverless cars and connected infrastructure in Virginia. The state’s intelligent roads are all located in Fairfax, and top autonomous vehicle researchers come to the county  to road test their technology.

On Wednesday, May 3, driverless car experts, policy makers, manufacturers and entrepreneurs will be at the Fairfax County Government Center to show off the latest research and technology. And, they’re going to offer demonstration rides.
