The City of Marysville, Ohio, will have 27 traffic lights equipped with sensors, transmitters, and digital displays in a connected vehicle technology test. The traffic lights will be connected to 1,200 private and government vehicles, Columbus Business First reported.

The system transmits a warning to vehicle dashboard displays if a pedestrian is crossing out of sight around the corner or an emergency vehicle or red-light runner is approaching.

Honda demoed the smart intersection technology in October. The state launched DriveOhio in January to develop and test smart mobility innovations.
