The conversation about autonomous vehicles starts and stops with in-vehicle technologies, and the discussion about Smart Cities doesn't include roads, even though cities are defined by their transportation infrastructure.

It's time to bring roads into the discussion about autonomous vehicles and Smart Cities, and explore the role roads play in supporting autonomous vehicles and building Smart Cities.
