Connected Future - Highways England

We’ve been working with Highways England on a trial that will transform how we drive. The vision for the future is ‘naked motorways’ with no gantries and road signs; instead all information will be delivered direct to the driver in their vehicle in real time, with the goal of making roads safer and journeys smoother.

Connecting vehicles to each other and the road around can improve journeys, make them safer and give drivers reliable, real time personalised information. It could also help us manage traffic and respond to incidents.
