Wind River has teamed up with the Transportation Research Center (TRC), the Ohio State University (OSU), and the City of Dublin, Ohio, to advance smart, connected and autonomous technologies. The partnership – focused around the Columbus region in central Ohio – aims to accelerate learning in the automotive industry.
The group looks to develop strategies and technologies that safely and securely increase the pace, quality, development, testing, and deployment of self-driving and other connected vehicle technologies.
Partners will test emerging technologies to discover how a symbiotic relationship between vehicles and infrastructure can improve the lives of community residents. In addition to the self-driving cars themselves, the group plans to test technologies such as vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication, connected vehicle cockpit software, smart sensing and mapping, and the associated data collection.
With Ohio State students, researchers and faculty playing a key role on the project, the collaboration is also intended to further develop the next generation of automotive minds.
