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 Safety Management Plan covers the entire program and each individual project. it identifies the physical risks that the projects induce into the deployment environment and the identified mitigations that are integrated into the projects. A Safety Operation Concept is developed for the higher-ranking risks and those are closely monitored throughout the program.
