PlanetM Awards New Grants to Advance Mobility Pilots in Michigan

PlanetM, the state of Michigan-backed business development organization, has announced a new batch of grants that aim to entice mobility startups and corporations to pilot their innovations in Michigan, or test and validate their technology at one of Michigan’s proving grounds.

PlanetM has awarded a total of $440,000 in grants to five companies. The startups are working on pilots such as secure delivery of prescription medications to rural locations, new GPS technology, and autonomous campus shuttles. (See below for project descriptions.)…

PlanetM began the mobility grant program last year. Its first award recipients were Derq, HAAS Alert, Humanising Autonomy, and RoadBotics, all of which conducted pilot projects across the state.
