Ohio Research Project Will Monitor Traffic With Unmanned Aircraft
The 33 Smart Mobility Corridor is getting even smarter under recently announced plans to study the use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), sometimes called drones, to monitor traffic and roadway conditions from the air along the corridor. The three-year study is a partnership between DriveOhio’s UAS Center and The Ohio State University College of Engineering.
“At DriveOhio, we are looking for innovative ways to integrate technology into our transportation systems. This project will help us explore the intersection between autonomous and connected vehicles on land and in the air. The goal is to understand how we can better manage traffic, roadway incidents, and roadway conditions using advanced technology and data analysis,” said Jim Barna, Executive Director of DriveOhio.
