A Roadmap for the Future
IAM is pioneering what is becoming the national playbook for a safe and scalable transition to automated vehicles. The consortium brings together experts from the private industry, government and academia. With a strategic, forward-thinking roadmap, IAM provides the technical guidance and coordination to deploy automation to significantly increase safety and efficiency.
A Statewide, Real World Laboratory
Arizona is globally recognized as a hub for innovation and emerging technology. IAM members collaborate to drive the research and development of automated mobility in Arizona and beyond.
Featured ProjectsOperational Safety Assessment Metrics
Working with the transportation community and municipalities, IAM has defined metrics for operational safety assessment and is constructing cost efficient methodologies for measurement.
Enabled by artificial intelligence, IAM is exploring how to use the state’s traffic camera network to broadly monitor the introduction of automated vehicles to roadways and provide key safety and operational insights to traffic management officials.
Arizona is a hot bed for testing automated cars, but they also come with a host of safety concerns. Now, ASU researchers are exploring ways to make automated cars safer. Dr. YZ Yang, an Associate Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at the Fulton Schools at ASU, is working to understand traffic through monitoring and data collection to inform autonomous vehicles.
It’s not uncommon in many parts of the Phoenix metro area to see a car driving down the road with a large spinning dome on top, sensors near the headlights and on the back of the car, and nobody behind the wheel.
