Mcity is a partnership with industry, communities and government formed at U-M to transform global mobility by dramatically improving transportation safety, accessibility, efficiency and sustainability. Mcity draws on U-M’s broad strengths in engineering, urban planning, energy and information technologies, business, law and the social sciences to accelerate progress in diverse areas such as connected-vehicle systems, driverless vehicles, shared vehicle, and advanced propulsion systems. The focus of the Mcity is a model deployment that will allow researchers to test emerging concepts in connected and automated vehicles in both off-road and on-road settings. Through interdisciplinary cooperation, Mcity will also address the many social, political, regulatory, and economic issues inherent in the transition to new mobility technologies and systems. The Energy Institute is a research partner of and a founding investor in Mcity.
