Gov. Mike DeWine recently signed an executive order renewing DriveOhio, the state initiative promoting self-driving cars and other forms of “smart” mobility. Ohio officials are working to maintain the state’s role as a national leader in the testing and deployment of automated and connected vehicle technology.
The state recently received a $7.5 million federal grant, along with $10.3 million in matching funds from other sources, to study the use of automated vehicles on the state’s rural roads. DriveOhio was created in 2018 by then-Gov. John Kasich. 10/31/2019
