Ohio Turnpike Will Begin Testing Self-Driving Cars Within a Year

The Blade (Toledo), and other sources including the international media, report that within a year, the Ohio Turnpike will begin testing “automated cars and trucks.” The vehicles will have “someone in the driver’s seat whose role is primarily to make sure the vehicle’s guidance system is working properly,” according to the newspaper. The report adds, “Turnpike Executive Director Randy Cole declined to discuss who in the automotive industry or elsewhere in the private sector will participate, saying that element is still being worked out.”
