As the winner of the United States Department of Transportation’s Smart City Challenge, Columbus, Ohio plans to deploy six electric autonomous vehicles (EAVs) throughout the Easton Town Center/Morse Rd. area. These EAVs will act as shuttles, and address the first-mile/last-mile issue involving lack of transport to a destination from a public transit drop-off point. This report employs a survey to determine the feasibility of EAV adoption in Columbus, Ohio - which has found implementation to be beneficial. Additionally, five EAV companies were researched to identify which is best for the Easton area.
