Welcome the epicenter for mobility

About iconMichigan has been the historic leader of transportation and has developed a thriving automotive industry. The state is continuing that legacy with MEDC's PlanetM initiative, a partnership of mobility organizations, communities, educational institutions, research and development, and government agencies that are working together to develop and deploy the mobility technologies driving the future.

Facilitating connections

Available to any mobility-focused company or investor, PlanetM is also a no-cost, concierge service that connects you to Michigan’s automotive ecosystem — the people, places, and resources dedicated to the evolution of transportation mobility.  

Our goal at PlanetM is to connect Michigan's assets with new and growing tech companies, startups, pilot programs, investors, accelerators and others looking to further expand the industry through innovative advancements that will define the future of transportation. 

Next generation mobility

The journey toward the future of Connected and Autonomous Vehicle (CAV) technology and Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) is accelerated through PlanetM. This moves us closer to a reality of enhanced mobility that can save thousands of lives lost per year due to auto accidents caused by human error.
