ESL helps ODOT monitor traffic and roadway conditions from the air

ESL helps ODOT monitor traffic and roadway conditions from the air

Technology always has a way of moving forward when there is a need. As drone numbers soar, DriveOhio’s unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) Center is investing $5.9 million for a three-year study on how to safely fit UAS into an already congested airspace. Led by The Ohio State University College of Engineering, the research looks at both air and ground vehicles to complement DriveOhio’s current initiatives in autonomous and connected vehicle testing. Learn how a key component of this research is being conducted at the ElectroScience Lab.
