The showcase featured remarks from USDOT and FHWA leadership, 25 interactive exhibits and demonstrations, and research presentations about Ultra-High Performance Concrete, hydraulics, autonomous vehicles, and human factors. Attendees of the showcase experienced a first-hand look at many of the technologies developed at TFHRC and met leading researchers and subject matter experts in transportation. The showcase strengthened existing multimodal collaborations across USDOT and created new opportunities to improve the Nation’s highways and bridges.
