Australia partners with Michigan on road transport innovation

Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) Australia said in a statement that it participated in the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Assistant Minister to the Prime Minister, Andrew Broad, and Director Michigan Department of Transport, Kirk Steudle.

The signing took place at the University of Melbourne which has played a central role in advancing the transport technology agreement between the governments of Australia and Michigan, primarily through AIMES (Australian Integrated Multimodal EcoSystem), of which ITS Australia is an active supporter.

Activities in Michigan and Australia are leading the development of intelligent transport technology and the MOU supports links between AIMES, home to a live test bed on Melbourne city streets, and Michigan’s Mcity and American Center for Mobility off-road facilities that will be highly beneficial in progressing advancement in this field.
