Mobility Transformation Center (MTC)
The Michigan Mobility Transformation Center (MTC) is a government-industry partnership formed at U-M to transform global mobility by dramatically improving transportation safety, sustainability, and accessibility. MTC draws on U-M’s broad strengths in engineering, urban planning, energy technology, and information technology to accelerate progress in diverse areas such as connected-vehicle systems, driverless vehicles, shared vehicles, and advanced propulsion systems. The focus of the MTC 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, MTC 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 an investor in MTC.
