Ohio State organization aims to bring smart technology to campus

A new Ohio State student organization created to enhance connectivity and mobility of transportation is now on campus.
The organization, called Smart Columbus, shares the vision of the Smart City challenge — an initiative to improve transportation and sustainability. While collaborating with Ohio State’s Center for Automotive Research, Transportation and Traffic Management, the student group strives to make campus transportation cleaner, safer and more efficient by incorporating smart technologies.
“The goal of this organization is to improve students’ lives,” said Danny Freudiger, a graduate student in mechanical engineering who leads the organization.
