Daimler Trucks N.A. announces partnership with American Center for Mobility

Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) announced a three-year, $3 million partnership with the American Center for Mobility (ACM). DTNA will use ACM’s facility in suburban Detroit to provide its customers and dealers the opportunity to experience the company’s latest in-vehicle technology from its Detroit, Freightliner, Western Star, Freightliner Custom Chassis Corporation (FCCC) and Thomas Built Buses brands.

ACM is a collaborative effort comprised of government, industry and academic organizations focused on accelerating the mobility industry through research, standards development and educational programming located in Ypsilanti, Mich.

In addition to ACM’s existing test environments, the organization says that DTNA’s financial support and knowledge of work truck operations facilitated the creation of a new off-road course within the ACM test center. This off-road course will be used to replicate extreme vocational environments, including a variety of grades, rough rock and embedded log obstacles, aggregate and mud surfaces, a sand pit, embankments and more, all supported by ACM’s Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) technology stack in the background.
