Driving an autonomous futureThe world is moving toward an autonomous future, and Michigan Engineering is uniquely positioned to help make it happen. Engineering is deeply involved in Mcity, U-M's public-private partnership aimed at advancing next-generation mobility. At the Mcity Test Facility, researchers are already testing tomorrow’s technology. The unmatched level of partnership and proximity with automakers like Ford and Toyota provide the know-how to get these technologies on the road. And the collaborative environment puts top experts in computer science, mechanical engineering and other fields within easy reach.
It’s a combination that has already led to some of the most significant developments in autonomous vehicle technology, and the pace will only accelerate in the days to come.
