October 3, 2019
Ford Motor Company is partnering with Ann Arbor to launch a data gathering and analysis platform to explore mobility solutions across the city.
The City Insights Platform will offer comprehensive views of safety, parking, transit and an interactive model display of the city with 3D printed buildings and streets that light up to show areas of congestion and provide real time data, Ford executives said in a Wednesday announcement.
“Ann Arbor is a center of technology, of innovation. It is a significant economic driver for the state of Michigan. It is home to one of the most advanced connected vehicle test environments," Mayor Christopher Taylor said, referring to the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute.
