Launching Soon

These innovations are still in the works on The Ray. We can’t wait until they come to life and work together with our regenerative highway ecosystem. Until then, you can check here to follow our plans, new partnerships, timelines and progress.

 

Solar Barriers

2017

We’re interested in finding ways that solar paneling can combine with other much-needed, functional highway innovations on The Ray. Specifically, we’re beginning our quest by prototyping solar barriers, which would help reduce highway noise while capturing valuable solar energy. As our endeavor evolves, we’ll keep posting the data and breakthroughs we achieve.

Drones

2017

State transportation agencies across the country are exploring drone usage and starting to think through policies to support their implementation. As unmanned aerial vehicles, drones could transform and modernize processes like inspecting bridges and culverts, surveying land for new roads and assessing damage after disasters. Beyond reducing costs for these activities, drones have the potential to save lives and prevent injuries to emergency management workers.

We have a few other ideas up our sleeves about how drones could improve The Ray experience for both drivers and the employees who keep our roads clear and safe. Look ahead, and more importantly, up! In 2018, through partnerships with Panasonic and Georgia Tech, drones will make their first flight on The Ray.
