“With advanced active driving assistance systems and automated driving technologies, we are going through what is probably the most transformational change in the automotive industry in our lifetimes”


“Why this is important to TRC? While we


are already the largest independent auto- motive vehicle testing facility in the coun- try, this investment will enable us to ensure that our capabilities are state-of-the-art to serve our customers and the industry. We already won the US DOT’s Smart City Challenge and we have already secured funding for the NW33 Intelligent Corri- dor. However, in order to safely deploy these technologies and solutions on pub- lic roads, they first need to be developed and validated thoroughly in a safe, secure, and controlled environment off of public roads. That is what TRC’s SMART Center will enable for SMART Columbus and the Intelligent Corridor.”


BIGGER, BETTER, FASTER, MORE The expansion plans are also good news for the USDOT and NHTSA, not to mention TRC customers and the industry at large. “TRC has been the home of the US


Department of Transportation (USDOT) National Highway Traffic Safety Adminis- tration (NHTSA)’s only vehicle research and test center for the last four decades where research on these technologies have been conducted at TRC for the last two decades. This new SMART Center will enable much more development by all of our custom- ers to accomplished to enable these tech- nologies and solutions to be proven out off of public roads prior to deployment on

public cities streets and highways. This will help make our roads safer for all. We are helping NHTSA develop its autonomous vehicle policy by providing the facility: tracks, labs, and a workplace. We also pro- vide talent: dozens of PhDs, engineers, sci- entists, technicians, and assistants to aid in the research and development of policies and guidelines.”


TESTING, TESTING… Talking of autonomous vehicles, Hotta says that the SMART Center has been designed to test new technologies and highly auto- mated vehicles in a ‘closed, safe, secure and repeatable real world environment’, before the vehicles are deployed on public roads and highways. “Those technologies range from advanced driver assistance systems
