With a growing population and increasing volume of transported goods, incremental improvements in mobility will not be enough to address the nation’s mobility requirements. “Smart solutions” are needed – innovative approaches to mobility that combine new technologies with non-traditional tools. Rigorous, applied research is the most effective way to develop solutions that can provide the order-of magnitude leap needed to realize our vision of convenient, accessible mobility for all people and goods.
MCTM leverages expertise and resources across the four partners to conduct cutting-edge, impactful research aligned with the Consortium’s goal and objectives.
Goal: Lead the nation in research that identifies safe, reliable transportation solutions that increase mobility of people and goods and strengthen the nation’s economy
