Texas A&M Transportation Institute and Neology Inc. have completed the Neology Transportation Research Center and extended their agreement for an additional five years, with an optional five-year extension.
TTI, which conducts more than 700 research projects annually with more than 200 sponsors, is located at Texas A&M University System’s 2,000-acre RELLIS Campus in Bryan, Texas, where it focuses on addressing complex transportation challenges and advancing technology in emerging transportation fields.
Neology Inc. is reimagining mobility to help customers develop smart cities and safer communities through its Mobility Platform, an AI-powered adaptive solution that helps connect existing infrastructure assets with next-generation technology to modernize how people move. Neology TRC will design, develop and test innovative mobility solutions at the TTI Proving Grounds.
“We are excited to expand our valuable partnership with TTI and celebrate the completion of the TRC research and development facility,” said Joe Mullis, general manager for Neology. “We are ramping up activities to full-scale and further collaborating with industry leaders and future innovators to bring practical, adaptive and sustainable solutions to our industry.”
Neology TRC is an open, scalable and flexible test site for new tolling and intelligent transportation system (ITS) solutions for driverless and connected vehicles. At its core is a one-mile test track that supports vehicles up to 100 miles per hour and includes two test gantries that can accommodate the deployment of future technologies, as well as an observation center for demonstrations and test viewing.
“Neology is a valued private industry partner for TTI, and we are pleased to extend our research agreement and collaborative activities in the development and testing of ITS technologies,” said Greg Winfree, TTI agency director. “These innovative technologies will help drive the future of mobility and connected transportation initiatives for many years to come.”
