Ohio Ramps Up for Testing of Autonomous and Connected Vehicle Technologies
The push to develop autonomous driving technologies is continuing on many fronts and in several states. Now, Ohio is leveraging its Transportation Research Center in East Liberty and its various highways and the Turnpike in an effort to become a central player in the development of driverless and connected vehicle technologies. Proponents say the additional technology can remove human error and distraction from driving and help reduce crashes, injuries and fatalities.
