Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's office, the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT), and the Michigan Economic Development Corp.’s (MEDC) PlanetM program have issued a request for proposals to demonstrate the potential of connected and automated vehicles to transform how visitors and residents will move during the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in June 2020. In concert with 2020 NAIAS activities, this challenge will spotlight what Michigan offers for the future of automotive technology and reiterate NAIAS’s role as a global platform for new transportation reveals.
The NAIAS 2020 Michigan Mobility Challenge will call upon industry innovators to propose new and dynamic technology deployments that embody how automated and connected vehicle technology can transform how we live, work and play. The demonstration will provide automated transportation for NAIAS attendees to and from Detroit Metro Airport and places of interest in downtown Detroit all brought together through a seamless user-experience app.
