Welcome to the world’s most unique proving ground – and airspace – for smart mobility technology. Have a technology to test or an idea to discuss? Our team would love to connect.
The 33 Smart Mobility Corridor is a prime location for the testing of connected vehicle technology.
Along the corridor lies rapidly growing, top-rated, and internationally-recognized suburban and exurban communities. It is here where you will find one of the largest concentrations of advanced manufacturing, logistics, and automotive integrators in the Midwest.
Here, industry works collaboratively with government and academia to safely test the future of transportation technology. And we’re just getting started.
“At the Ohio Department of Transportation, safety is our first priority. The technology solutions that have and will be tested on the 33 Smart Mobility Corridor will save lives. As we develop the transportation system of the 21st century, Ohio will be present in a smart mobility future that will support the companies and jobs to help Ohioans succeed in an ever changing economy. The Beta District is an important partner as we work to improve the quality of life for all Ohioans.” – Jack Marchbanks, Ph.D., Director of the Ohio Department of Transportation
In The Beta District, collaboration is more than a buzzword. Here, we work together to solve challenges that seem impossible. We think big and proactively work together to remove barriers to success.
While many say that, we live it.
Here, industry and academia work together to gather research, analyze data, and deploy new variations of technology. Government agencies from local, state, and federal bodies work side-by-side with businesses and non-profits to launch innovative projects.
And here, industry and startup leaders alike aspire to share the knowledge that will one day spur progress. Together with our partners, we’re creating smart mobility assets that allow for “right-size” design of new technology that increase safety and improve traffic flow.
The 33 Smart Mobility Corridor is positioned to continue to build Ohio’s role as a world leader in transportation technology, thanks to key partnerships and collaborations.
