ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN OHIO


Columbus Wins DoT Smart City Challenge


Ohio’s capital city, Columbus, won the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Smart City Challenge, receiving $40 million from the DOT, and $10M from Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s Vulcan Inc. — along with another  $90 million pledged by private sector partners to change the mobility landscape of the city. So what did this smaller, Midwestern city do to beat out more “tech-identified” hotspots like San Francisco and Austin? What was in their bid that stood out to the team of judges? Columbus decided to address their main challenges head-on: socio-economic and geographic isolation, mobility dominated by the private automobile, an aging population with younger members of the community moving to denser areas of the city, lack of access to mobility for low-income neighborhoods, but still a city with a growing economy and population with its related housing,  traffic, and environmental challenges.


The Columbus’ Approach

Columbus’ hopes to address their challenges with these five strategies:

A Smart Corridor to provide access to jobs – Columbus will build a pathway with concentrated transit services that address last mile connections to connect the work force with their employment centers.

Real-time and integrated Data for Smart Logistics – As a major freight hub with a multimodal inland port, Columbus plans to enhance timeliness and quality of the traffic condition data and develop a routing app for trucks to improve reliability and operational efficiencies.

Connected Visitors – Columbus plans to fund a private sector app for events and activities in the city that will provide real-time information related to traffic / parking conditions and transit options.

Connected Citizens – With a specific  focus on Columbus’ Linden neighborhood mobility challenges linking citizens to jobs, healthcare, and education services, the city will work with local private and public social services providers to improve mobility and transit options.

Sustainable Transportation Options – Similar to the other finalist cities in the Smart Cities Challenge, Columbus plans to support and encourage an ecosystem around car-sharing, electric vehicle use, and smart grid mobility patterns for a more sustainable and mobile city.
