Technology Highlight – Solar Roadways

A few inventors have been working on a solar roadway and they’ve come a long way towards making their dream of every road in the US a high-tech thruway. The roads promise to self generate power from the cars driving on it to heat roads to melt snow and ice, illuminate roads at night, carry cables for phone and internet services to homes, provide smart grid access for electric vehicles and deliver important messages to drivers via LEDs. Could also make for some really cool roadway advertising!
