Researchers at the University of Michigan and community partners will apply new information and sensing technologies to explore new mobility solutions in Benton Harbor, Michigan, thanks to a new, four-year $1.4 million grant from the National Science Foundation.
Marcus Muhammad, mayor of Benton Harbor, expressed his excitement about the project.
“The work to be completed under this grant will be wonderful for our transit system and our citizens,” said Muhammad. “The proceeds of this grant are bringing to bear the knowledge and expertise of some of the best minds in the university on some of the city’s issues. With the continuing support of the city commission, the various research activities that will be performed will benefit us for years to come.”
