Automated Technology

Development of semiautomated and fully automated (self-driving) vehicles has progressed rapidly in recent years and holds potential to eliminate certain types of vehicle crashes. UMTRI, with its extensive knowledge of integrated vehicle-based safety systems, works in collaboration with the U-M College of Engineering to accelerate the development and testing of automated vehicle technology. Like connected vehicles, the related vision of driverless vehicles requires a vehicle and infrastructure system that is designed to increase transportation safety, optimize mobility, and promote accessibility.
