IEEE has announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the American Center for Mobility (ACM), a global center for testing and validation, product development, education and standards work for connected and autonomous vehicles and other technologies. The MOU is intended to help accelerate development and deployment of technical standards.

The IEEE Transportation Electrification Community (TEC) coordinates IEEE activities in the electrification revolution across transportation domains, including advances in electric and hybrid cars, more-electric ships and aircraft, rail systems, personal transport and the motive, storage, power grid, electronic intelligence and control technologies that make them possible.

The American Center for Mobility and IEEE TEC will identify needs for standards, as well as validation and conformance testing requirements, as part of the agreement. IEEE TEC and the American Center for Mobility will also promote the importance of standards, inter-operability and validation and testing compliance.

The American Center for Mobility is a uniquely purpose-built premiere national facility for mobility and advanced automotive testing and product development focusing on testing, validation and self-certification of connected and automated vehicles and other mobility technologies at the 500-acre historic Willow Run site in Southeast Michigan.
