Ohio is home to dozens of public and private entities involved in the design, development, testing, use, and regulation of autonomous and connected technologies. DriveOhio brings all of these organizations together under one umbrella, serving as the hub for all things autonomous and connected in Ohio.
DriveOhio also works to ensure Ohio’s regulatory environment and public policies are conducive to the development of the infrastructure and technologies needed for smart mobility. Instead of asking companies to work simultaneously with multiple agencies, DriveOhio is a one-stop-shop for those developing, testing and deploying advanced mobility solutions in Ohio.
“DriveOhio’s commitment to the testing and deployment of connected and self-driving technologies is impressive.” said Jason Conley, Executive Director for OmniAir®. “DriveOhio’s innovative approach is one of the reasons Ohio is recognized as a national leader in transportation innovation. We look forward to working together to help advance OmniAir’s testing and certification programs for V2X.”
Formed in 2018, DriveOhio was recently re-authorized by an executive order signed by Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, as the statewide center for smart mobility solutions. Ohio currently has six designated “smart” projects aimed at testing real-world autonomous and connected technologies, with more on the way.
