Mobility is the movement of people, goods and information. In terms of autonomous vehicles, mobility includes everything from the roads to the dashboard to the engine to the LIDAR sensors. The research is inherently interdisciplinary.
Unstructured environments are the gray zones of mobility. It’s where chaos enters the picture. Michigan Tech is in a remote, snowy region in the Upper Peninsula—our community regularly has to make sense of chaos and a lack of structure, and to some extent, that carries over into our research.
To help make it easier to find the technical help your business needs for research and development, links to the various resources have been assembled on www.mtu.edu/mobility
