During the annual OSBA Capital Conference Breakfast, OACTS members and guests learned more about the future of smart mobility and its implications for the workforce. Rich Granger, managing director of DriveOhio, provided the keynote for the breakfast and discussed the innovative practices taking place in Central Ohio currently and into the future.
Ohio is home to dozens of public and private entities all involved in the design, development, testing, use, and regulation of autonomous and connected technologies. DriveOhio, the state’s new center for smart mobility, brings all of these organizations together under one umbrella, serving as the hub for all things autonomous and connected in Ohio. Supported by the Ohio Department of Transportation, DriveOhio also works to ensure Ohio’s regulatory environment and public policies are conducive to the development of the infrastructure and technologies needed for smart mobility.
As the single point of contact for all of Ohio’s smart mobility initiatives and advancements, DriveOhio fosters cooperation and collaboration, offers faster access to resources by breaking down government barriers, and improves efficiencies for people and organizations that want to be part of this industry. DriveOhio is committed to advancing smart mobility in Ohio and being a one-stop shop for those looking to develop, test and deploy advanced mobility solutions in Ohio.
