An optimal travel planning search engine and a cognitive computing solution for autonomous driving were among the seven technologies that will receive $600,000 from U-M’s Michigan Translational Research and Commercialization Statewide Innovation Hub to continue their advancement into the commercial market. The advanced transportation innovation hub is part of a statewide initiative, in partnership with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation’s Entrepreneur and Innovation program, funding translational research and accelerating the creation and transfer of new technologies from institutions of higher education, hospital systems, and nonprofit research centers. Technologies can be from research settings to practical real-world applications. The U-M innovation hub is run jointly with the Center for Entrepreneurship and the Office of Technology Transfer.
