American Center for Mobility is a collaborative effort comprised of government, industry and academic organizations focused on accelerating the mobility industry through research, testing, standards development and educational programming.
Located in Southeast Michigan on over 500-acres at the historic Willow Run site in Ypsilanti, the ACM offers:
- A smart city test center providing a safe platform for the integration, testing and validation of connected and autonomous vehicle and mobility technologies
- A technology park for the co-location and incubation of mobility companies
- An event center for showcasing connected and autonomous vehicle technologies and convening industry activities
Smart City Test Center
The ACM is a one-of-a-kind global Smart City Test Center providing a platform for the integration of emerging mobility technologies in intentionally challenging environments. With over 500 acres of variable road systems and customizable test environments, ACM offers:
- Comprehensive Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) network
- World’s first CAV specific 5G Network (AT&T Global Test Bed)
- Closed data network to support testing and product development activities
- Cloud services for high volume data transfer
- Professional engineering services
- Private vehicle laboratories
ACM Event Center
Planned construction is on hold due to COVID-19 and will resume at a later date.
The American Center for Mobility (ACM) event center will accommodate up to 500 people and several vehicles inside its’ 8000 square-feet event and exhibit space. The ACM event center will be uniquely co-located within ACM’s smart city test center, providing space for automotive, mobility and technology companies to integrate their meetings and conferences with the ability to demonstrate and showcase their vehicle and mobility solutions in safe and configurable environments.Learn More
ACM Technology Park
Building on Michigan’s legacy as the global epicenter of the automotive industry, ACM’s Technology Park is strategically located amongst the region’s industry clusters include academic research institutions, concentrated engineering talent and the greatest concentration of automotive industry innovation on the planet.
The ACM Technology Park will provide opportunities for mobility companies to co-locate next to ACM’s already established, world-class smart city test center where automotive and mobility companies come to research, test, validate and evolve their technologies.Learn More
The ACM research team works with public and private organizations to conduct important and scientific activities related to mobility technologies. Providing technical expertise coupled with the right kind of curiosity, ACM can leverage the use of its’ smart city test center to help research institutions develop technical plans and drive the execution to ensure research results are comprehensive and accurate.
The ACM is regarded as a leader in research and development of emerging mobility technologies, recipients of multiple technical research grants from the US government. ACM research also works with universities and major automotive companies.
