S-20: Ohio Turnpike ACV Testing

Description

The 241–mile Ohio Turnpike is DriveOhio's site for testing ACVs. The turnpike is outfitted end to end with fiber–optic cable, and it already has been a testing site for self–driving trucks. Roadside units were installed in a 60–mile stretch of the turnpike and onboard units were installed and operational in fleet vehicles during the first quarter of 2018, giving the Ohio Turnpike Commission the ability to produce traffic and weather alerts for digitally connected vehicles and to use vehicle and road condition data to make better decisions about treating roads and managing incidents.
