Driving the Future of Mobility

In 2014, the University of Michigan announced plans to launch an advanced mobility research center. U-M created Mcity to cultivate the diverse expertise and resources required to realize the potential of emerging mobility technologies, and their commercial and economic viability.

What Makes Mcity Unique

Three aspects of Mcity make it unique: early-stage testing in our labs, funding a wide-range of research, and our commitment to education and outreach. Our partners in industry, government, and academia are Mcity’s foundation.

Our model is working. Today, Mcity has established itself as a leading voice in connected and automated vehicles (CAVs).
