Georgia-Based Innovation Lab Works to Speed the Transition to Clean Transportation


Curiosity lab and peachtree corners. Georgia companies are testing new transportation technologies. For example. you can summon an electric scooter and it will roll up riderless and ready for you to hop on. Think uber but for an scooter. You pull up. You call it. The east cooter drives to you. Brandon brandon is chief technology officer for the city of peachtree corners which owns curiosity lap. The lab is located within technology park and allows companies free of charge to see how their products perform a real world setting. The property includes a one and a half mile stretch of road. That's used at the test. Track for technologies like the scooters and self driving electric shuttles and now part of the track is a solar road it's embedded with solar panels. That people can walk in drive on and they've here right on top of the roadway. So you don't have to bust up. The asphalt random says the manufacturer is evaluating. How the solar road performed with pedestrians bikes and cars and changing weather. Conditions can hold up on a roadway. What happens when it gets really hot. What happens when it rains. The data that companies gather at curiosity lab can help improve emerging technologies and that can help speed the transition to cleaner transportation
