The American Center for Mobility (ACM) announced its second partnership with Siemens. Siemens Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS) will provide approximately $1 million in ITS infrastructure, software, and engineering support to ACM. The newest agreement between Siemens and ACM adds physical infrastructure, software applications, and analytics to the Virtual Simulation and Testing solutions provided by Siemens PLM, announced earlier this year. Under the terms of this new agreement, Siemens ITS will also have a seat on ACM’s Industry Advisory Board (IAB.) 

“This expanded partnership with Siemens enables ACM to be outfitted with the best infrastructure and applications to benefit our testers,” said Soraya Kim, Chief Innovation Officer of the American Center for Mobility. “Our goal is to provide our testers the means for exhaustive validation methodologies and comprehensive regulations for the safe deployment of connected vehicle technologies—something I am confident this extended partnership accomplishes.”

“Michigan has done an incredible job of ensuring its position as a leading technology hub for future transportation solutions, and the American Center for Mobility is an important cornerstone of that effort,” explained Marcus Welz, CEO of Siemens Intelligent Traffic Systems. “As a company that is transforming today’s digitalized environment for many different transportation applications, we realize the importance of being involved with the type of research and testing that is happening at this center and its eco-system.”
