Smart Columbus Project Data

The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) pledged $40 million to Columbus as the winner of the Smart City Challenge. By challenging American cities to use emerging transportation technologies to address their most pressing problems, USDOT aimed to spread innovation through a mixture of competition, collaboration and experimentattion.

Smart Columbus Operating System serves as the data “backbone” for our smart city projects, serving to collect and transmit data about the projects, and to capture performance data reported to the USDOT and the public. Search for key performance indicator data (or KPI) to compare and contrast the project data with data determined to help measure the impact of projects over time
