More than ten years ago, a small team of students and engineers from Virginia Tech won big at a national contest for software that allowed a car to drive all on its own.

That technology has since grown into a successful Blacksburg-based company that’s on the cutting edge of self-driving technology.

The company just completed its first cross-country road trip, and Mallory Noe-Payne was there as they pulled into their final stop.
