Transportation in Michigan and around the world is changing every day. The way we move people and goods is being defined by intelligent, connected and automated vehicle technologies. The future of transportation offers many opportunities for new and innovative advancements, which will redefine how we travel, build sustainable networks, and improve safety. As a department with a long, rich history filled with many transportation firsts, MDOT is dedicated to being a leader in transportation innovation and technology.
Michigan's transportation future is bright!
The concept of the Connected Vehicles (CV) program holds the promise of forever changing the way MDOT and the public-sector do business in regard to operations and maintenance. However, much work is required for connected vehicles to be implemented in the United States. The technical and institutional challenges are extensive and will require time to overcome.
The vision for the corridor is intended to create lanes that are purpose-built to accelerate and enhance the full potential of CAVs and move people. To achieve this, Cavnue will work with regional partners to plan, design, and develop the world’s most sophisticated roadway, combining innovations in physical, digital, coordination, and operational infrastructure to help increase the safety, efficiency, resilience and operations of roadways, and improve the mobility experience for users by enabling a faster and more coordinated dedicated autonomous mobility corridor.
The $8 Million Michigan Mobility Challenge grant initiative was created to address core mobility gaps for seniors, persons with disabilities and veterans across the state. The Challenge encouraged public-private partnerships to design pilot projects that use technology to improve mobility for the target populations.
