ACM Partners and Industry Advisory Board

ACM has a unique partnership model where companies can leverage ACM as a platform to convene together to accelerate the development of connected and automated technologies. The ACM Partnership model offers a low barrier to entry to the US market with access to and integration with the Detroit mobility ecosystem  including suppliers, partners, and policy leaders.

As partners, each company has representation on the ACM Industry Advisory Board (IAB) where they play a significant role in ACM’s strategic growth by providing vital input on improvements to the facility and services, implementation of new technologies, voluntary standards, best practices and education programs.


Convene key leaders across the mobility ecosystem in order to shape the future state of ACM and to best service its stakeholders in changing the mobility landscape.


The ACM IAB’s mission is to bring investment partners together to gain their strategic and operational guidance on testing, standards, and education related to future mobility. Engaging diverse representatives from industries will lend ACM a unique lens into the rapidly evolving mobility space, provide guidance as the landscape changes, support ACM’s intention to be a world class convener of the mobility ecosystem and facilitate connection and collaboration of partner organizations to advance technologies and capabilities in the space.

ACM continues to grow its partners and Industry Advisory Board. If your company is interested in representation, please contact us.

IAB Committees

The possibilities of collaborative activities through the development of committees within the IAB support further industry integration and the development of programs and solutions that can create the impact needed to move the industry forward. The IAB has three committees including:

Testing Committee

Standards Committee

As the industry continues to emerge and evolve the ACM acts as a neutral convener of industry, standards and government organizations to collectively discuss and shape mobility technology standards.

Education Committee

The ACM recognizes the challenges faced by the mobility industry as new and emerging skills are required to keep pace with workforce demands. ACM is dedicated to understanding the challenges and bringing together the right groups to ensure that there are programs in place that are aligned with the fast-paced talent needs of the industry.

The ACM Education Committee provides integration between industry partners and the ACM Academic Consortium to address talent pipeline issues and solutions in four distinct areas including:

  • K12
  • Higher Education
  • Workforce Development
  • Public Adoption

In 2017 the American Center for Mobility (ACM) in partnership with 15 colleges and universities announced the creation of the Academic Consortium at ACM to train the next generation of high-tech talent.

Through the partnership the group looks to align with ACM’s industry partners to create educational pathways to train and prepare students to support automated vehicle testing and implementation. Members will identify workforce courses and training programs as well as recruitment opportunities, internships, co-ops and work study programs for Academic Consortium students.
