The future of roads is: Safer

Cavnue is building the future of roads

Cavnue combines technology and road infrastructure to unlock the full potential of connected and autonomous vehicles.

Cavnue is a company founded by Sidewalk Infrastructure Partners (SIP) to build the future of roads. The interstate highway system defined mobility in the second half of the 20th century. Now, transportation in America and around the world is changing again. Mobility in the 21st century will be defined by intelligent, connected, and autonomous vehicles. Cavnue is designing the physical, digital, coordination, and operational infrastructure to accelerate and realize the full potential of connected and autonomous vehicles to make roads safer, less congested, shared, and sustainable.

Cavnue’s lead project in Michigan

Cavnue is developing a first-of-its-kind connected corridor in Michigan, the birthplace of the automobile and the home of 75% of U.S. automotive R&D investment.

Cavnue is undertaking a planning process to inform the development of a first-of-its-kind connected corridor in southeast Michigan.

Cavnue is undertaking a feasibility analysis to inform the development of a first-of-its-kind connected corridor in southeast Michigan. Cavnue was selected by the Michigan Department of Transportation to bring together technology and infrastructure to create a connected corridor improving safety, congestion, accessibility, and other benefits for the state. With partners spanning sectors — Michigan’s state government and the City of Detroit, the University of Michigan, the Ford Motor Company, and others — we’re starting work to pilot, plan, and potentially develop a Connected and Automated Vehicle Corridor between downtown Detroit and Ann Arbor. Over time, the corridor will yield greater safety and accessibility while allowing existing roadways to handle more passengers - and fairly and equitably provide critical access in communities with long-standing transportation and transit gaps. The project would be “future-proofed” and evolve to meet transit goals, beginning with connected buses and shared mobility vehicles, and over time expanding to additional types of CAVs such as personal vehicles and freight. The first phase is a collaborative piloting, planning, and development period lasting 24 months to test technology and infrastructure, conduct analysis and community outreach, and establish a viable vision for the project.
