Neology, a leading provider of tolling, electronic vehicle registration and public safety technologies, is partnering with the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) to establish a state-of-the-art R&D test facility at The Texas A&M University System’s RELLIS Campus.
The goal of the long-term master research agreement is to expand and improve transportation technologies. The new RELLIS campus, a $300 million, 2,000-acre facility with six miles of high-speed proving grounds, offers an ideal location for Neology to design, develop and test new technology solutions.
“We also look forward to collaborating with the nation’s top faculty, researchers, students and other transportation partners of TTI. Our long-term relationship and investment with TTI will provide agencies and industry experts insight into the most advanced transportation solutions to meet tomorrow’s transportation-related challenges,” said Joe Mullis, General Manager of Neology.
“We are exciting to have Neology as a flagship partner at the Texas A&M RELLIS Campus. This industry-research partnership is exactly the type of relationship that highlights the value to both Neology and Texas A&M of having industry partners working closely with faculty, researchers, and students at the leading-edge of transportation technology,” said Christopher Poe, Assistant Director for Connected and Automated Transportation Strategy at TTI.
The RELLIS Campus is a premier, high-tech research, technology development and education campus. The RELLIS Campus includes multimillion-dollar state and national research facilities, test beds and proving grounds that primarily focus on robotics, driverless and connected vehicles, advanced manufacturing, large-scale testing, as well as smart power grids and water systems. The RELLIS Campus will also include education facilities that will offer two- and four-year degree programs beginning in fall 2018.
