The world of self-driving cars and autonomous vehicles has finally come to Central Florida. And not just in the semi-autonomous car model version. Quite the opposite, actually. On Monday, November 13, state officials broke ground on Suntrax, a 400-acre autonomous vehicle testing site in Polk County. Those who are most likely to have direct involvement in the sensor testing and wireless technology of the track are the nearby students of Florida Polytechnic University.
As a leader in transportation technology, Florida is creating this high-tech hub for the research, development, and testing of emerging transportation technologies related to tolling, intelligent transportation systems and other advanced transportation concepts.
Construction is slated to finish in the spring of 2019.
