Aecom has teamed up with infrastructure technology company Cavnue to deliver a connected and autonomous vehicle (C/AV) corridor in Southeast Michigan. 

Specifically, Aecom is to provide engineering planning and design services for this project and then expand to other locations across North America.

The partners will also deliver environmental documentation, conceptual and final design on several major roadways in the US state.

Jennifer Aument, Aecom’s global transportation chief executive, says: “This partnership will advance transportation in a way that’s sustainable, smarter and safer for generations to come in Michigan.”

In Michigan, Cavnue is to integrate a roadway infrastructure stack with a hardware and software product to simplify the operating environment for all vehicles and to provide more information to vehicles about the road ahead. 

Both companies will work with the Michigan Department of Transportation to utilise this system to provide insights back to those that operate and manage roadways. 

Cavnue’s co-founder Tyler Duvall says: “Smart cars need smart roads. Cavnue’s mission is to simplify and enhance the driving environment to unlock the full potential of all autonomous vehicles.”

“We’re excited to begin work in Michigan together and develop the solutions that will be the blueprint for the next generation of roadways,” Duvall adds.
