Mechanical Simulation has been selected to join the University of Michigan’s Mobility Transformation Center (MTC) as an Affiliate Member. The MTC is a major research partnership of industry, government and academia that is laying the foundation for a commercially viable system of connected and automated vehicles.
MTC is developing three complementary on-road vehicle deployments in Ann Arbor and across southeast Michigan, which will serve as test beds for partners to evaluate the effectiveness of various approaches and explore market opportunities.
In addition, MTC is collaborating with the Michigan Department of Transportation to build Mcity, a full-scale 32-acre cityscape on campus for testing connected and automated vehicles and systems before they are tried out in real traffic. Mcity will be formerly opened in July, 2015.
Mechanical Simulation is providing several CarSim and Sensors licenses to U-M students and researchers working at the MTC.
“We are proud to join the MTC because it provides collaboration opportunities with the people and organizations leading the connected car revolution. As a company we stress that development of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving technologies requires proven vehicle dynamics tools that easily integrate with a company’s existing simulation infrastructure,” said Dr Mike Sayers, Mechanical Simulation founder and CTO.
