New funding aims to enable a safer, more equitable and efficient mobility system.
Connected and Automated Vehicles
$9.8M to boost connected vehicle research and expand Ann Arbor deployment
$5M to enable remote, next-generation autonomous vehicle testing at Mcity
‘Mcity 2.0’ will give researchers, many without testing resources, remote access to the Mcity Test Facility—creating a more equitable playing field in mobility.
$9.95M for “smart intersections” across Ann Arbor
Technology embedded in existing infrastructure will provide data to connected and automated vehicles, bolstering safety.
Midwest USDOT Center for Connected and Automated Transportation established
$2.47 million midwest research center will conduct connected and automated vehicle research.
How we roll
Going driverless could be the biggest reboot of the American transportation system since the horse and buggy went the way of, well, the horse and buggy. Are we ready to make it happen?
