Smart Columbus Program: Demonstration Site Map & Installation Schedule

The City of Columbus Smart Columbus Program Management Office (PMO) and Institute of Transportation Engineers will host a free webinar to share the latest systems engineering documents for the Smart Columbus Program. The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, January 30, 2020, from 1:30 to 3:00 pm ET and will focus on the Demonstration Site Map & Installation Schedule.

Webinar Background:
Through the USDOT's Smart City Challenge, in 2016, the Department selected Columbus, Ohio, to define what it means to be a "smart city" and serve as a model for other cities wishing to fully integrate innovative technologies--such as automated vehicles, connected vehicles, and applications--into the transportation network. The goal of the Smart Columbus program is to connect people by creating opportunity for city residents to better access jobs and services while improving the overall safety and efficiency of the city's transportation network. The Smart Columbus program is comprised of nine individual projects covering three themes--enabling technologies, emerging technologies, and enhanced human services.

The Demonstration Site Map & Installation Plan identifies the specific geographic areas for the projects and indicates locations related to key issues, current and proposed roadside technology locations, connected and autonomous vehicle operations, and other explanatory features to support efforts that align with the city’s proposed strategies. In addition, this document outlines the site installation schedule that identifies infrastructure installation activities. For each type of physical infrastructure element to be installed, this schedule will indicate:

  • The type of infrastructure element to be installed;
  • Planned installation start and end dates for each infrastructure element;
  • Organization or individual responsible for the installation;
  • Milestone(s) identifying when the installation of each type of infrastructure element is completed; and
  • Planned start and end dates for testing the operation of each infrastructure element (by type).
The scope of this document is focused on outlining the physical location for all hardware elements of the
various Smart Columbus projects and the schedule for their installation.
