Columbus, Ohio, Launches Connected Vehicle Project
Nearly 2,000 vehicles and more than 100 intersections will be linked to demonstrate how real-time technology can manage traffic and improve safety.
Connected vehicle technology is coming to Columbus, Ohio, in the hopes of making a large swath of the city safer for motorists as well as pedestrians and cyclists.
The city is moving forward with a demonstration project to connect up to 1,800 private and public vehicles, as well as upgrade some 113 signalized intersections with technology to better manage traffic as well as improve safety.
The project, set to go live in July 2020 and known as the Connected Vehicle Environment, is part of the Columbus Traffic Signal System. It falls under a host of smart city and smart transportation projects operated under the Smart Columbus umbrella, established two years ago when the city was named the recipient of a $40 million Department of Transportation Smart City Challenge grant.
