Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s new director said Aug. 23 the lab is considering testing in Chattanooga related to autonomous driving and long-haul trucking.
Also, lab chief Thomas Zacharia said during a visit to the city’s Innovation District that a Chattanooga office set up last year “absolutely” will remain in place as the lab tries to forge new partnerships with EPB, businesses and others.
“We see ORNL as not just a national lab but as a regional force,” he said. “We really want to make sure we play that role working with Chattanooga.”
