The Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) and Neology have completed work on a transportation research centre and extended a research agreement for an additional five years. 

The Neology centre is located at the TTI Proving Ground on The Texas A&M University System’s Rellis Campus for designing, developing and testing mobility solutions.

TTI describes the facility as an open and flexible test site for new tolling and ITS solutions for connected and autonomous vehicles (C/AV). 

According to the TTI, the centre features a one-mile test track that supports vehicle speeds up to100 mph and includes two test gantries that can accommodate the deployment of future technologies, as well as an observation centre for demonstrations and test viewing.

Neology is a provider of mobility solutions and services for transportation, tolling and public safety. It offers solutions powered by artificial intelligence to help improve the safety and sustainability of critical infrastructure. 

TTI agency director Greg Winfree says: “These innovative technologies will help drive the future of mobility and connected transportation initiatives for many years to come.”

Joe Mullis, general manager of Neology, says: “We’re ramping up activities to full-scale and further collaborating with industry leaders and future innovators to bring practical, adaptive and sustainable solutions to our industry.”
