News From Ohio State Engineering & Center for Automotive Research

Greetings from Ohio State Engineering & Center for Automotive Research,

I’m sending along this email in case you missed our exciting news a couple weeks ago about a $69 million investment in autonomous vehicle R&D…

The path toward a safe and smart autonomous car hit the fast lane on January 27 with a $45 million commitment to expand The Ohio State University-affiliated Transportation Research Center. The funds will support research and innovation for autonomous – or driverless – vehicles. President Michael V. Drake announced the funding with Gov. John Kasich at an event at Ohio State’s Center for Automotive Research.

Ohio State will contribute $25 million to TRC, with an additional $20 million coming from the state. In addition to the university and state funding, the College of Engineering has committed $24 million over five years to hire faculty and staff to support research into autonomous vehicle technology.
