MDOT chief to Congress: Autonomous vehicle research encouraged

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKZO) -- Michigan Department of Transportation Director Kirk Steudle is working to convince Congress that investing in research on autonomous vehicles will pay off.

Steudle testified before a U.S. House subcommittee in Washington, DC Tuesday and noted the emerging technology can potentially bring about a significant reduction in vehicle crashes and related fatalities.  He urged Congress to protect the 5.9 GHz bandwidth for use by the connected-vehicle program.

Researchers in Ann Arbor are already working on driverless cars.
