Michigan, where big ideas in mobility are born, is welcoming delegates to visit its Planet M booth. Visitors will be able to immerse themselves with the Planet M virtual reality experience that lets them experience Michigan’s leadership in CAV R&D and infrastructure, such as Mcity and the American Centre for Mobility.
The VR experience uses Oculus Rift and up to three Planet M chapters, ranging in length from 90 seconds to 3.5 minutes.
Planet M, organised by the Michigan Department of Transportation and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) is Michigan’s partnership of mobility organisations and communities working together on the research, development and deployment of mobility technologies driving the future. It represents community, education, industry, research and government agencies that are aligned to deliver tomorrow’s transportation technology economy.
Available to any mobility-focused company or investor, Planet M offers a concierge service that connects them to Michigan’s automotive ecosystem — the people, resources and places dedicated to the evolution of transportation mobility.
“Planet M is your no-cost, personalised resource with the mission to provide the world’s best customer service to companies focused on mobility,” said Bob Metzger, business marketing director, MEDC. “It doesn’t matter where you are, Planet M can help you get to your next destination and a visit to the PlanetM.com website will demonstrate Michigan’s leadership in transportation mobility.”
