As Autonomous Vehicles begin hitting the road, the push for innovation will continue to ensure new technologies are implemented safely and effectively. 407 ETR, in partnership with 3M Canada, has started this process by testing the use of 3M’s pavement marking tapes optimized for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) on 2.5 km of lanes on Highway 407 ETR.
