Carnegie Mellon University will receive $14 million over the next five years from the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) to establish a new National University Transportation Center (UTC).
The UTC, which will be named Mobility21, will focus on safely and efficiently improving the mobility of people and goods in the 21st century by investigating and deploying novel technologies, incentives, policies, and training programs.
Mobility21 is a partnership between the College of Engineering and the Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy. It contributes to initiatives in both colleges and the university in smart transportation and smart city research and education.
