Intelligent Traffic Systems is to supply $1m of ITS infrastructure to the American Center for Mobility
(ACM). The partnership is developing real-world testing and validation of connected and autonomous vehicles (C/AVs).
Soraya Kim, ACM chief innovation officer, says: “Our goal is to provide our testers the means for exhaustive validation methodologies and comprehensive regulations for the safe deployment of connected vehicle technologies.”
Siemens ITS will also deliver software applications and analytics to the virtual simulation and testing solutions provided by Siemens PLM, a business unit which specialises in 3D and 2D product lifecyle management.
In May, Siemens PLM delivered Siemens’ simulation and test solution for automotive to ACM to support the virtual and physical testing of C/AVs.
Dave Lauzun, vice president of automotive & transportation industries at Siemens PLM, says: “Having both our virtual and physical assets at the Center will ensure a comprehensive validation of today’s – and tomorrow’s – mobility ecosystem.”
ACM is also supported by its founders AT&T, Visteon, Toyota, Ford and Hyundai America Technical Center. Sponsors include Microsoft, Subaru of America and Adient.
