The University of Cincinnati is partnering with community, government, and industry leaders to build Innovation Districts and foster a thriving 21st century ecosystem centered around smart and sustainable mobility solutions in greater Cincinnati.
Focusing on connectivity, interoperability and resilience in the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region, the US-27 Smart Connectivity Corridor project will support cutting edge development and provide the infrastructure for the future tech-enabled businesses and workforce.
This project seeks to construct a sustainable, fast, green, affordable and flexible mobility system that serves the needs of people and businesses, including fast and inexpensive employment accessibility across the region, giving both residents and businesses the transportation access they need to succeed.
Speakers, panels, and presentations will explore smart city solutions beyond municipal boundaries, where stakeholders are required to focus on multi-jurisdictional coordination and collaboration while prioritizing cyber-physical security and privacy in planning.
As research and testing of autonomous vehicles and smart mobility programs in the state ramp up, we could see driverless vehicles on the streets of Cincinnati, in coordination with the ongoing Smart Cincy initiative.
The City of Covington KY will continue its urban revival with plans to create the foundation of what will become a smart city success story. The city has partnered with Cincinnati Bell to provide free public WiFi to residents as they move about the downtown core. This will likely lead to other smart city projects ranging from parking solutions to smart lighting.
