President Mark Schlissel urged state lawmakers Thursday to provide more funding for direct-to-student need-based financial aid as a way to boost degree attainment, cut student debt, improve the state economy and increase per-capita income.
The race is on to get self-driving cars on the road, with Waymo, BMW and Volkswagen recently announcing plans to further invest and experiment with autonomous vehicle technology.
Mcity at the University of Michigan has outlined a test track-based concept for evaluating the safety of highly automated vehicles before they’re tested on public roads that could emerge as a model for a voluntary standard for safety testing.
Augmented reality technology can accelerate testing of connected and automated vehicles by 1,000 to 100,000 times, and reduce additional testing costs — beyond the price of physical vehicles — to almost zero, according to a new white paper published by Mcity.
The University of Michigan Law School and Mcity are set to announce the launch of the Michigan Journal of Law and Mobility, dedicated to the complex legal issues at the intersection of mobility transformation and law.
The Mcity Driverless Shuttle, a research project at the University of Michigan, launched Monday on North Campus.
The Mcity Driverless Shuttle will begin operating on North Campus on June 4. It is the nation’s first driverless vehicle research project focusing on user behavior and data collection.
Connected cruise control uses vehicle-to-vehicle communication to let automated vehicles respond to multiple cars at a time in an effort to save energy and improve safety.
University of Michigan researchers have demonstrated its effectiveness on public roads, even when just one automated vehicle is moving among human-driven cars.
Forty-two companies have committed to investing $150,000 each in Mcity as Affiliate members over the next three years.
Mcity is the University of Michigan-led public-private R&D initiative leading the transformation to connected and automated mobility.
Companies investing in second-phase funding as Mcity Affiliate members:
Instead of taking you home from work, your self-driving car delivers you to a desolate road, where it pulls off on the shoulder and stops.
You call your vehicle to pick you up from a store and instead you get a text message: Send $100 worth of Bitcoin to this account and it'll be right over.
Eleven companies are investing a total of $11 million in the second phase of industry funding for Mcity, the University of Michigan-led, public-private, research-and-development initiative leading the transformation to connected and automated mobility.
A car barrels through a red light, but the Lincoln MKZ leading the cross traffic doesn't T-bone it. In fact, the Lincoln never enters the intersection. It gradually slows down and yields to the law-breaking vehicle with time to spare.
Mcity will launch a driverless shuttle service on the University of Michigan's North Campus beginning this fall.
Mobility researchers at the University of Michigan have devised a new way to test autonomous vehicles that bypasses the billions of miles they would need to log for consumers to consider the vehicles road-ready.
A fully autonomous, 15-passenger electric shuttle manufactured by French firm NAVYA will support research and provide self-guided tours of Mcity, U-M's one-of-a-kind test site for connected and automated vehicles.
U-M and NAVYA announced the collaboration Friday.
New University of Michigan research vehicles will be open testbeds for academic and industry researchers to rapidly test self-driving and connected vehicle technologies at a world-class proving ground.
A $27 million investment from a Chinese firm will strengthen the efforts of the University of Michigan, along with industry and government partners, to advance autonomous, connected vehicles and robotic technologies for a safer and more sustainable future around the world.
Robotic technologies for air, sea and roads, for factories, hospitals and homes will have tailored lab space in the University of Michigan's planned Robotics Laboratory.
Three high-potential companies from the West Coast — Zendrive, PolySync and Civil Maps — will join TechLab at the University of Michigan's Mcity this fall, moving resources to develop their driverless vehicle technologies in Ann Arbor.
