Intelligent Mobility: Solutions for Safe, Clean and Efficient Transportation

May 2, 2017
Living Labs will be created to allow the testing of synchronized mobility technologies in complex urban environments.

The University of Nevada, Reno’s Intelligent Mobility brings together researchers, citizens, ideas, projects and resources to meet this grand challenge and contribute to the vibrant communities of our future.

The initial project of the University of Nevada, Reno’s Intelligent Mobility is an ambitious effort. In the Living Lab of the greater Reno-Sparks-Carson City area, researchers and partners will test, develop and refine systems in which vehicles sense their environment and communicate with other vehicles, infrastructure and individuals through mobile devices.

RTC’s state-of-the-art electric buses manufactured by Proterra will be used for the project. Driver-operated buses on specific routes will be fully instrumented to sense and gather a range of data that will contribute to the development of new ideas, technologies and systems. The success of the project will be defined by its contributions to transportation safety, reductions in fuel consumption and emissions, commercialization of research, business growth and workforce development.
