How Brandmotion Helped SmartColumbus Design and Implement a Multi-Vehicle V2X Implementation for USDOT


As the winner of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) first-ever Smart City Challenge, Columbus, Ohio, is on a mission to be the model for connected cities in the United States. The vision of Smart Columbus is to empower residents to live their best lives through responsive, innovative, and safe mobility solutions.

Columbus was awarded $50 million in grant funding from the USDOT’s Smart City Challenge. The project, called the Connected Vehicle Environment (CVE), is seeking to serve as a model for other cities that intend to integrate connected vehicles into their transportation networks.

The City assembled an implementation team that included Brandmotion Solutions to implement a vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) network. Thanks in part to Brandmotion Solutions’ deep connected vehicle expertise, the project will serve as a model for future Smart Cities.

This case study highlights the keys to success of the connected vehicle integrations in Columbus.
