DENSO has announced that it is investing $1.42 million to launch a Smart Mobility Ecosystem in Dublin, Ohio, with the aim to enhance transportation.
In the project, DENSO is working with a coalition of municipal, state, business and academic partners to test and implement infrastructure technologies, create value-added mobility services, and gather previously untapped data that are vital to increasing road and pedestrian safety and reducing travel times.
This initiative supports DENSO’s long-term policy to create new value for advanced mobility, and boosts its expansion into software-based solutions as it explores new business domains and new customers.
DENSO is currently working with the following partners in Ohio to implement its Smart Mobility Ecosystem:
• The City of Dublin, a municipality that will beta-test a strategically targeted transportation corridor that includes both roundabouts and signalized intersections.
• The Ohio State University, whose researchers at its Center for Automotive Research will provide a range of smart mobility solutions, including data services and analytics.
• Connected Signals, creators of predictive V2I technology that makes cars, transit, pedestrians and cyclists safer and more fuel-efficient.
• DERQ USA, an AI platform developer that integrates with existing traffic and sensor systems and powers real-time advanced analytics and connected vehicle safety applications to help cities and road authorities eliminate road accidents and better manage traffic.
• No Traffic, an AI-powered traffic signal platform that solves today’s traffic management challenges while preparing cities for the connected and autonomous era.
Mobility is a critical component in communities of all densities and DENSO aims to be a key resource for new customers in this domain by leading the development of smart mobility ecosystems.
