ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN OHIO

Northeast Ohio accelerates self-driving vehicle effort: 
Here's How it all will Work
Gov. John Kasich today announced that his upcoming budget will include funding to make I-90 from I-271 to the Pennsylvania state line one of the newest places where autonomous vehicles will hit the roads. The I-90 corridor is one of the latest roads in the state to be named a testing ground for self-driving vehicles, what the state is calling a "smart highway."
The Ohio Turnpike and the Smart Mobility Corridor - a 35-mile stretch of road outside of Columbus - already have been identified as routes for autonomous and connected vehicle research and have had self-driving commercial trucks operate on them.The governor's new budget also includes funding to make the I-270 beltway in Columbus a smart highway as part of the state's creation of an "expanding network of smart highways."Kasich hopes to make Ohio a center for development of the autonomous driving industry. He has said he wants to see technological investments in the industry help redefine Ohio, which too often is referred to as the "Rust Belt."

Ohio builds out its smart road
By the end of next summer, sensors on a 35-mile stretch of highway in Ohio could be providing real-time road, weather and traffic data to the state. The Ohio Department of Transportation is upgrading its Smart Mobility Corridor with high-capacity fiber-optic cables that connect to embedded and wireless sensors -- a new network that ODOT officials say  will ultimately provide data to researchers and traffic monitors.
The corridor runs along U.S. Route 33, a four-lane, limited-access road in Ohio. Gov. John Kasich announced a $15 million investment to install advanced highway technology and make the corridor into a “proving ground” for autonomous and connected vehicles. Installation is slated to begin in May and last through the summer.
“Initially, we are going to outfit that corridor with fiber” from Dublin to the East Liberty-based Transportation Research Center, an independent automotive proving ground,  ODOT Chief Engineer Jim Barna told GCN. ODOT plans to attach the sensors to the fiber that will facilitate communication between the infrastructure and vehicles. “It will also serve as a testing location for any type of fully automated vehicle,” he added, and effectively serve as an open-road laboratory.
