Doug Ducey, Arizona Governor today announced the signing of a decree by which the Institute for Automated Mobility (IAM) is created, a trusted system created by companies, universities, and government agencies to function together for self-propulsion testing at Arizona.
The MOI will include physical centers designed for complex research and scenarios, the government declared this afternoon at a news conference. A traffic incident management department, designed and managed by the Arizona and Arizona Department of Public Safety, will learn the driverless technologies used by first responders and law enforcement. The IAM will also have a simulation lab and an enclosed 2.1 km test track with different route settings, traffic lights, signaling, and intersections.
Among the founding members of the consortium are Intel, the Arizona Department of Public Security and three public universities of Arizona, comprising Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, and the University of Arizona. The efforts will be monitored by the Arizona Commerce Authority and director of research and innovation at Arizona State University, Dr. Sethuraman Panchanathan.

Intel characterizes it as a good sense approach to making decisions on the road inclined good habits, such as maintaining a safe distance and giving priority to other cars.
