As the first major investment in Detroit Urban Solutions, the WSU Industry Innovation Center (I2C) will utilize its 45,000 square-feet of office, laboratory, and event and demonstration space as a location for university faculty, researchers, and students to co-locate with industry to work on a variety of cutting edge technology projects. The facility offers 18,000 square-feet of high-bay, reinforced concrete floor lab spaces that are incredibly difficult to find in move-in ready condition. The eCAT WSU site is hosted on the first floor of I2C, which consists of two 2,400 square-feet labs, one for connected and autonomous driving technologies and the other for electrification and battery technologies.
Clarkson Ignite represents a forward-thinking integration of innovation resources, both space and programming, across the Clarkson community. With the observation that innovation occurs at the intersection of business, engineering, science, and technology and strong support from the university, the program has led to a major capital renovation of the Schuler Educational Resource Center into the campus “Innovation Hub”. The eCAT Clarkson site is supported by campus-wide resources including Innovation Hub, the Clarkson Heterogenous Cluster as the computing backbone for connected and autonomous vehicle (CAV) workloads, as well as High Bay Area of Combined Lab and Machine Shop for fast prototyping.
University of North Texas
UNT's Discovery Park is the largest research facility in the North Texas region with nearly 300 acres of space dedicated to the sciences, technology and engineering. It includes a 590,000 square foot building and supports interactive and multidisciplinary research, education and training that benefits students, faculty and the community, and expands economic development by developing industry-university partnerships. The eCAT UNT site is hosted on the second floor of the building with over 3,000 square foot lab and demonstration space for connected autonomous vehicles research and validation. The UNT site will leverage campus-wide institutes and resources, including the Center for Integrated Intelligent Mobility Systems, the PACCAR Technology Institute, and the Connected Autonomous Vehicular System Laboratory.
