Realtime Technologies (RTI), an expert in simulation software applications and hardware development, has joined the University of Michigan’s Mobility Transformation Center (MTC) Affiliate Program.
“This is an exciting opportunity for RTI,” said David Bouwkamp, executive director, business development at RTI and its parent company FAAC. “RTI is a leader in autonomous vehicle simulation and brings to this team expertise in multi-body vehicle dynamics, and graphical simulation and modeling, that will be an important part of developing this new technology. We are looking forward to being a part of the team.”
The Affiliate Program includes 27 partners who will work closely together to shape a viable system of connected and automated vehicles, including automotive manufacturing, vehicle communication devices, chips and hardware, insurance, data acquisition, intelligent transportation systems, and advanced modeling.
Heather Stoner, senior project manager at RTI, commented, “Studying the transfer of control between automation and the human is critical. Our tools enable a graphical, real-time simulation and modeling system that can help everyone involved in this program truly understand how this technology will work in the real world.”
