CINCINNATI – As part of the comprehensive effort to transform Cincinnati into a smarter city, the City of Cincinnati will install a new ‘fiber ring’ around the entire Central Business District.
The panel session on autonomous transportation systems at the Ohio Conference on Freight - aptly labeled "Rise of the Robots" - considered current and expected impacts of technology on “human” employment and future workforce needs.
This past week Smart Cincy partners, Venture Smarter and the University of Cincinnati (UC), were joined by representatives from Drive Ohio, the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC), and the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency (NOACA) for the Ohio Conference on Freight hosted by the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI).
Dr. Jiaqi Ma (University of Cincinnati), Mark Policinski (Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments), Jim Barna (DriveOhio), and Zack Huhn (Venture Smarter, Regional Smart Cities Initiative) joined WVXU in there latest “Cincinnati Edition” to discuss why Ohio could be a leader in autonomous vehicle technology and how advances in smart mobility could affect our daily lives.
