The American Center for Mobility (ACM) has extended its collaboration with Siemens PLM Software, as part of which, Siemens will supply US$1m in ITS infrastructure software, and engineering support to ACM.
“This expanded partnership with Siemens enables ACM to be outfitted with the best infrastructure and applications to benefit our testers,” said Soraya Kim, chief innovation officer of the American Center for Mobility.
“Our goal is to provide our testers the means for exhaustive validation methodologies and comprehensive regulations for the safe deployment of connected vehicle technologies – something I am confident this extended partnership accomplishes.”
“Michigan has done an incredible job of ensuring its position as a leading technology hub for future transportation solutions, and the American Center for Mobility is an important cornerstone of that effort,” explained Marcus Welz, CEO of Siemens Intelligent Traffic Systems.
Dave Lauzun, VP of automotive and transportation industries at Siemens PLM, added, “Now, having both our virtual and physical assets at the center will ensure a comprehensive validation of today’s – and tomorrow’s – mobility ecosystem.”
