IEEE says it signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the American Center for Mobility (ACM) to help accelerate development and deployment of technical standards for autonomous vehicles as well as related control systems.
The IEEE Transportation Electrification Community (TEC) coordinates IEEE activities involving electrification across transportation domains, including advances in electric and hybrid cars; more-electric ships and aircraft; rail systems; personal transport; and the motive, storage, power grid, electronic intelligence and control technologies that make them possible.
As part of the agreement, ACM and IEEE TEC will identify needs for standards, as well as validation and conformance testing requirements. The groups will also promote the importance of standards, interoperability, and validation and testing compliance.
The American Center for Mobility is a purpose-built facility for mobility and advanced automotive testing and product development focusing on testing, validation and self-certification of connected and automated vehicles and other mobility technologies at a 500-acre site in southeast Michigan.
