The Ray and Curiosity Lab at Peachtree Corners, are joining forces to further transportation innovation.
The partnership will work to facilitate emerging technology testing and demonstration between the two locations of The Ray’s 18-mile interstate corridor in Troup County and Peachtree Corners’ 1.5-mile autonomous vehicle test track in Gwinnett. The two organizations will also collaborate on external funding proposals and partner with academic and commercial entities on future mobility projects.
“It’s really such a natural fit,” said Harriet Langford, founder, and president of The Ray. “We’re a high-speed, public interstate in ex-urban Georgia, and Peachtree Corners’ smart city project is located within a 500-acre commercial park with slower speeds that encounter pedestrians, deliveries, and other elements that we don’t have on The Ray. By working together, we can cover so much more ground.”
Together, Curiosity Lab and The Ray have the potential to attract additional transportation research and development investment in Georgia leading to job growth and economic development.
