Ohio Cities Work on Self-Driving Infrastructure
Nov. 30, 2018—As part of the DriveOhio program through Ohio’s Department of Transportation, both Springboro and Dayton are working on plans to pilot automated technology and infrastructure, reported Dayton Daily News.
Gov. John Kasich signed an executive order in May designed to attract more autonomous-vehicle testing to the state, looking to keep up with California and Arizona where companies are making major investments.
Springboro’s primary goal is to add artificial intelligence at four major intersections to better control traffic. Those systems are expected to learn traffic patterns and help stop lights communicate to improve the flow of traffic, according to the report.
