The Ohio Department of Transportation is working with the city of Marysville, Ohio, and Honda to create one of the largest deployments of connected vehicles in the country. Honda is installing onboard units in vehicles of its employees who live in Marysville. The city and state, meanwhile, are installing onboard units in government and law enforcement vehicles as well as in vehicles of volunteers. The goal of the project is to have onboard units in 1,200 to 1,500 vehicles – or 10 percent of the traffic in Marysville. In addition, the city is installing smart and connected traffic signals that will use data from the vehicles to manage signal timing, detect pedestrians and prevent collisions.
