The FEHRL Collaborative Research Project Forever Open Road article in World Highways (May 2019)


The FEHRL Collaborative Research Project Forever Open Road is featured in an article in the May 2019 issue of World Highways magazine.


In the article Corridor for prosperity: the 5G Road, FEHRL Deputy Secretary-General, Adewole Adesiyun highlights the Forever Open Road studies stating: “there will likely be three iterations of a fifth generation road: the adaptable road, the automated road and the resilient road”.
