Greg Stevens joined Mcity as research director in August 2023. Working with other Mcity leaders, he steers the center’s strategic research plan for next generation mobility, including connectivity, automation, AI, and the role of infrastructure, and he oversees Mcity’s industry partner research program.
Greg works closely with Mcity industry members and assists in recruiting new members as needed. He serves as project manager of industry and government-funded projects directed by Mcity, and collaborates with others within Michigan Engineering to ensure effective development and execution of the research program. One of Greg’s priorities at Mcity is helping to translate innovative research into valuable industry applications. He is uniquely qualified to take on this challenge.
Greg joined Mcity following a long career at Ford Motor Co., where he most recently served as chief engineer of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) features. He has over 14 years of experience developing ADAS features spanning automated driving levels from 0 through 4, as defined by SAE. He managed a global portfolio of advanced features that assist with difficult tasks, such as trailering; automate repetitive work, like highway driving; and help the driver avoid accidents. At Ford, he built his ADAS team from a core of 25 engineers located in Dearborn, Michigan, into a global organization of 225 engineers in Dearborn; Palo Alto, California; Germany; and China.
Greg also has his own ADAS consulting firm, Causality LLC.
Greg holds a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from Princeton University, and a Master of Science in Engineering from Stanford University.
