Three of the most notable trends in ground vehicle technologies are electrified, connected and automated vehicles. They have the potential to significantly improve the safety, sustainability and environmental impacts of vehicles. Two research centers were established recently at the University of Michigan targeting these topics. The US-China Clean Energy Research Center—Clean Vehicle Consortium, which supports more than 30 research projects related to the development of clean vehicles in US and China. and the Michigan Mobility Transformation Center, which aims to develop three large living laboratories: Connected Ann Arbor, Connected Southeastern Michigan, and Automated Ann Arbor. In this talk, we will present the key research focus and current status of these two centers.
