DriveOhio is an initiative of the Ohio Department of Transportation, serving as the state's hub for smart mobility technology on the ground and in the air. Smart mobility technology is rapidly transforming and creating industries in virtually every sector of our economy. Ohio understands that a state willing to invest in the research and infrastructure needed to take part in this transformation will see those investments rewarded with jobs, new businesses, and economic growth.
The DriveOhio mission is to create pathways for the use of smart mobility technologies that increase safety, enhance mobility, expand access, and attract, prepare, and retain Ohio's talent. We connect government, industry, and academia to support research, development, testing, and deployment of innovative solutions to Ohio's mobility challenges.
DriveOhio's current portfolio includes automated vehicle, connected vehicle, electric vehicle, and advanced air mobility efforts. In addition to fostering technical advancement in these areas, we work to ensure Ohio's regulatory environment and public policies are conducive to further technology development and adoption.
