PAVE Virtual Panel: All AVs are Local: Michigan
For our second panel of 2021, we wanted to take a look at some of the enterprising projects that states are doing to help prepare them for the AV future. Of the many examples to choose from (and we will have future conversations about those!), this conversation will profile Michigan.
Last August, Michigan announced a public-private partnership to create a connected and automated vehicle (CAV) corridor connecting Detroit and Ann Arbor. To discuss this real-world AV infrastructure project, we’re bringing together Michigan DOT’s Intelligent Transportation Systems Project Manager Collin Castle, Michigan’s Chief Mobility Officer Trevor Pawl, and Ford’s Co-founder of the AV Mobility Corridor Team, Amanda Roraff. We’ll talk about the partnerships that are bringing this vision to life and how Michigan believes this focus on physical infrastructure can help unlock the potential of automated vehicles to transform mobility.
