The Mason-SAVI Collaboratory is an informal initiative whose mission is to bring together faculty, students, staff, and alumni who share an interest in researching and developing AV solutions.
One of the goals of the collaboratory is to have profiles of faculty and students as well as have students with their faculty advisors aggregate in this Hub the best knowledge about: AV Users & Policy, Vehicles & Materials, Automation, Infrastructure & Traffic, Data Analytics & IT, Systems Engineering, and AV Solutions.
From this knowledge base and based on original research by Mason faculty and students and collaboration with SAVI Tech LLC, will be to develop solutions for how to best design and implement an intelligent campus infrastructure supporting legacy vehicles and driverless, electric shuttle systems. Our initial focus will be on the Fairfax Campus to create the world's first Smart Campus. a catalyst and facilitator enabling Mason to become a global leader in AV Research and Development.
The collaboratory will also be working with other universities around the globe especially with Virginia universities.
