John Kasich Leads Ohio into the Driverless Future
Governor Kasich breaks ground on a new test track for autonomous and connected vehicle technologies in Ohio. From his press release:
The executive order authorizes researchers to test on Ohio roadways as long as their vehicles meet certain safety requirements and are capable of complying with Ohio traffic regulations. Ohio is investing in infrastructure upgrades that will allow devices on roads and traffic-control signals to send critical travel and weather information to drivers.
Kasich discussed the initiative on CNBC today, saying “Our goal is for Ohio to be viewed as the Knowledge Belt, not the Rust Belt.”
