Ohio’s Smart Mobility Corridor Announces New Partnership for Self-Driving Tests

A new public-private partnership entered by Ohio State University (OSU) and the city of Dublin, Ohio, is bringing new connected and self-driving vehicle research to the state’s Smart Mobility Corridor.

A partnership between Dublin, OSU, the Transportation Research Center (TRC), and the Intel-owned software firm Wind River will look to “develop strategies and technologies that safely and securely increase the pace, quality, development, testing, and deployment of self-driving and other connected vehicle technologies,” according to a June 7 announcement from Wind River. The alliance builds on two years of self-driving vehicle technology research in Ohio, a state that has begun to make a name for itself in an emerging technology sector.
