Wales and Michigan to collaborate on road technology

Wales and Michigan will collaborate to develop intelligent transport systems and next generation vehicle technology.

By CBR Staff Writer

The agreement will see Welsh and US researchers and engineers share information about road systems, smart cars, video and radar sensors and GPS modules that can be used to relieve traffic congestion, prevent or lessen the impact of some crashes, monitor traffic conditions, and computerize traffic control and traveler information systems.

Michigan’s Department of Transportation, chief deputy director, Kirk Steudle, said, Working with our partners in Wales will enable the two leading proponents of ITS to increase investment and research by encouraging private investors in Wales to use Michigan as the bridgehead into the US and to encourage private developers in the US to use Wales as the bridgehead into Europe.
