Connected Vehicle Study Expanding to Dublin
Dublin, Ohio - DriveOhio’s connected vehicle technology research study, Connected Marysville, is expanding to Dublin residents. The Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) and DriveOhio are equipping residents in the Beta District with connected vehicle technology to study the potential safety benefits.
Connected vehicles communicate wirelessly with other vehicles on the road, sharing important safety and mobility information and generating anonymous data about how, when and where vehicles travel. Drivers equipped with CV technology will receive safety alerts for potential hazards like a red-light violation, pedestrian ahead, curve speed advisory, and a lane closure warning.
Through this research study, participants will provide safety lessons to benefit other communities across Ohio and the nation. Eligible drivers can receive no-cost vehicle safety equipment and could earn up to $180 in Yiftee e-gift cards to use at local businesses. To opt in to the Yiftee program so that participants can spend rewards at your business, contact Breanna.Badanes@dot.ohio.gov.
