Cities such as Cincinnati are embracing these technologies to improve public transportation, said Zack Huhn, president of Venture Smarter. He envisions autonomous public shuttles being introduced first to places such as the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport or even UC’s campuses.
“We’re really talking about integrating intelligent transportation solutions into our infrastructure and our public transit systems,” he said.
Huhn said UC will play an important role in helping to prove the feasibility, safety and long-term cost-effectiveness of these integrated systems.
“UC is deeply involved in making these things happen. It’s great for the region that this research lives here,” he said.
