Driverless cars test track opens

driverless cars Logan County

Ohio officials expect driverless cars to be here sooner than later, so to get a jump-start, the state opened its SMART center in Logan County.

The SMART – or Smart Mobility Advanced Research Test – includes a six-lane, high-speed “smart” intersection, complete with a traffic light, which companies and researchers can use to test new vehicle technology.

The $45 million SMART facility measures 540 acres. The north-south leg of the six-lane intersection measures 1.2 miles, which officials tout as the longest in the industry. Honda uses the track since its manufacturing plant is nearby in Marysville.
