MOBILITY PROVING GROUNDS PROGRAM
PROPOSE A PROJECT
Our ecosystem enables collaboration between you, local universities, and companies to source smart solutions.
Welcome to the Mobility Proving Grounds (MPG) program of the North Texas Center for Mobility Technologies (CMT). CMT brings the coordinated expertise of our North Texas research universities and advanced mobility solution providers to mobility challenges faced by industry, municipalities, non-profits, and public agencies in the region, across Texas, nationally, and globally.
About Our Process
The form below allows the MPG team to confidentially find the companies best suited to meet the transportation/mobility needs you identify.
In the first section of the form, you will share some basic information about your municipality and point(s) of contact taking the lead for the needs you identify. The next section will address the specific need(s), background information that makes addressing this need a priority for you, any thoughts you have about what a complete solution will look like, as well as the time frame for implementation. The final section will allow you to share plans for implementation once you settle on a solution, the location (s) at which the solution(s) will be deployed, and any special requirements you might have.
