New members become the first academic institutions to join the alliance for autonomous vehicle testing
WARRENDALE, Pa. (June 4, 2020) – The International Alliance for Mobility Testing & Standardization (IAMTS) announced today that the alliance has gained two academic institutions with the onboarding of the University of Michigan MCity and Florida Polytechnic University. With these new additions, IAMTS is now a global, membership-based alliance of more than 20 stakeholders in the testing, standardization and certification of advanced mobility systems and services.
MCity is a public-private research partnership led by the University of Michigan which brings together industry, government, and academia to advance connected and automated vehicle safety, sustainability, and accessibility for the benefit of society through research funding, testing and development facilities, and technology deployments.
“We are pleased to join the International Alliance for Mobility Testing and Standardization,” said Huei Peng, director, MCity. “The work of the IAMTS is critical and will ensure that we coordinate internationally. I’d like to thank SAE ITC and the IAMTS Executive Committee for their leadership in organizing this group.”
Florida Polytechnic University is the newest public state university in the state of Florida. As a polytechnic, the university is focused on STEM and has recently formed the Advanced Mobility Institute as a premier research organization focused on autonomous vehicle validation and verification.
“The progress of autonomous vehicle technology is gated by the ability of the industry to solve the critical safety and validation challenges. I have been involved with IAMTS since its early foundational stages and it is quite exciting to see the progress the organization has made in the past year,” said Dr. Rahul Razdan, senior director at Florida Polytechnic University. “We are pleased to accept IAMTS invitation for membership and plan on contributing to moving the state-of-art forward in this field.”
