Siemens Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS) will now provide approximately $1 million in state-of-the-art ITS infrastructure, software, and engineering support to aid the American Center for Mobility (ACM) in developing real-world testing and validation of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs).

The newest agreement between Siemens and ACM adds physical infrastructure, software applications, and analytics to the Virtual Simulation and Testing solutions provided by Siemens PLM, announced earlier this year. Under the terms of this new agreement Siemens ITS will also have a seat on ACM’s Industry Advisory Board (IAB).

“Michigan has done an incredible job of ensuring its position as a leading technology hub for future transportation solutions, and the American Center for Mobility is an important cornerstone of that effort,” explained Marcus Welz, CEO of Siemens Intelligent Traffic Systems. “As a company that is transforming today’s digitalized environment for many different transportation applications, we realize the importance of being involved with the type of research and testing that is happening at this center and its eco-system.”

ACM is a nonprofit testing, education, and product development facility for future mobility, designed to enable safe validation and self-certification of connected and automated vehicle technology, and to accelerate the development of voluntary standards. ACM is one of 10 U.S. DOT designated Automated Vehicle Proving Grounds in the U.S. The Center is a joint initiative with the State of Michigan founded in partnership with the Michigan Department of Transportation, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, the University of Michigan, Business Leaders for Michigan, and Ann Arbor SPARK.
