Why Ohio

Ohio’s Advancing the Future of Smart Mobility

Investments in a smart mobility ecosystem put Ohio in the driver’s seat for developing automated vehicles and related technology.

Ohio’s Resources are Second to None

Ohio offers unparalleled resources for companies engaged in the research, development, testing, use and commercialization of smart mobility solutions.
Ohio has what’s needed to become a leader in the rapidly changing field of smart mobility. No other state can claim the combination of resources that exist in Ohio. From its collaborative environment and well-maintained infrastructure to its four-season climate and exceptional research and test facilities, Ohio is the best place in which to develop, test and commercialize smart mobility technologies.
