Groundbreaking Connected and Automated Vehicles Course Returns in March

Integrative Systems + Design (ISD) is pleased to announce the return of its Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAV) program this March 21-24 in Ann Arbor. Led by a team of leading US researchers and practitioners at the University of Michigan (U-M), the four-day course is designed to educate engineers, managers and thought leaders about the technologies, challenges, and current development efforts in connected and automated vehicles.

The CAV program combines interactive classroom sessions with demonstrations, simulations, and discussions in order to provide a comprehensive framework of the industry. Not only will participants learn about key industry topics – big picture trends, research in the US and abroad, CAV technology, cybersecurity, simulation tools, and more – they will also have the opportunity to tour Mcity, U-Ms own 32-acre "mini-city" designed expressly for testing CAV systems and other emerging 21st century smart city technologies. Mcity is the world's first controlled environment designed for such purposes, offering an unparalleled experience for those in the field.

The program's distinguished instructional team includes U-M Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) director James Sayer, Perceptual Robotics Laboratory (PeRL) director Ryan Eustice, UMTRI professor Henry Liu, UMTRI research scientist André Weimerskirch, and Mobility Transformation Center (MTC) director Huei Peng. Its exhaustive curriculum and world-class faculty have earned the course high praise from past attendees. Participants have noted that instructors do "a great job of conveying a complicated and difficult subject in a comprehensive way," pointing out their "clear delivery and solid understanding of the current state of the automated and connected vehicle realm." With several of the field's preeminent researchers leading the immersive four-day session, attendees are sure to receive a balanced, rewarding and unique learning experience.
