GREENVILLE, S.C., Sept. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) Secretary Anthony R. Foxx visited the International Transportation Innovation Center (ITIC) in Greenville, S.C. today to observe examples of the latest road safety and road charging technology in development for automated, sustainable and connected vehicles. Headquartered in Greenville, S.C., ITIC operates as a neutral, non-profit provider of innovation, testing and testbed development services for automotive technology R&D. Speaking before a crowd of more than 100 business and industry leaders, Foxx focused his remarks on the four major points of the Federal Automated Vehicle Policy his department issued last week. “We are on the cusp of one of the most dramatic transformations in the history of transportation,” he said. “When it comes to the future of technology, our policy leaves plenty of room for leadership to come in and help us continue to raise the bar on safety. It’s exhilarating to see what’s happening here at ITIC and in other places like Detroit and Silicon Valley.”
