Mechanical Simulation Corporation Joins University of Michigan's MTC Affiliates Program

Membership delivers high-fidelity vehicle dynamics and advanced sensor technologies to connected vehicle OEMs and researchers.

ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 13, 2015 - Mechanical Simulation Corporation, developers of CarSim simulation software, has been selected to join University of Michigan’s Mobility Transformation Center (MTC) as an Affiliate Member. The MTC is a major research partnership of industry, government, and academia that is laying the foundation for a commercially viable system of connected and automated vehicles.

MTC is developing three complementary on-road vehicle deployments in Ann Arbor and across Southeast Michigan that will serve as test beds for partners to evaluate the effectiveness of various approaches and explore market opportunities. In addition, MTC is collaborating with the Michigan Department of Transportation to build Mcity, a full-scale 32-acre cityscape on campus for testing connected and automated vehicles and systems before they are tried out in real traffic. Mcity will have a formal opening on July 20, 2015.

Mechanical Simulation is providing several CarSim + Sensors licenses to U of M students and researchers working at the MTC. "We are proud to join the MTC," states Dr. Mike Sayers - Mechanical Simulation founder and CTO, "because it provides collaboration opportunities with the people and organizations leading the connected car revolution. As a company we stress that development of ADAS and autonomous driving technologies requires proven vehicle dynamics tools that easily integrates with a company’s existing simulation infrastructure."

"Through this consortium arrangement, we seek to engage the range of cutting-edge technology suppliers, thought leaders, and entrepreneurs required to inform and drive progress toward that transformative vision," said Dr. Peter Sweatman, Director of MTC.

About Mechanical Simulation Corporation: Mechanical Simulation Corporation is a technology leader in the development and distribution of advanced software used to simulate vehicle performance under a wide variety of conditions.
