CAMMSE (Center for Advanced Multimodal Mobility Solutions and Education) is a Tier 1 UTC (University Transportation Center) and a consortium of five universities, led by The University of North Carolina, Charlotte (UNC Charlotte), each with outstanding programs in synergistic research, education, technology transfer and innovation on multimodal transportation planning, design, operations, and maintenance. The Center includes UNC Charlotte, the University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin), the University of Connecticut (UConn), Washington State University – Pullman (WSU), and Texas Southern University (TSU), each with unique records as education hubs engaging diverse populations and nurturing the success of all students.
CAMMSE will address the FAST Act research priority area of “Improving Mobility of People and Goods” by focusing on developing advanced technology, methods and models for multimodal transportation (including highway, air, rail, freight, public transit, bicycle and pedestrian) as well as educating and developing an effective workforce. A collaborative research, education and outreach partnership will harness advanced (computing, smartphones and communication) technologies and ubiquitous data for creating sustainable, efficient and growth-enabling multimodal transportation systems using cutting edge analytical methods and models.
As a result, research performed by the Center will deliver impactful products to local, regional, and national stakeholders that support economic development, significantly improve mobility of people and goods, reduce congestion, promote safety and social equity, preserve the environment, and preserve the existing transportation system.
