V2X (Vehicle to Everything!) is an exciting new project that involves coding, programming raspberry pi and arduino tech to sensors, robotic vehicles, and beacons. In the real world, V2X is at the cross section of the automotive industry and IT. This avenue for transportation will come with the potential for high tech jobs right here in Michigan. Providing opportunities to develop talent within our young people is key to its success.
The Square One Education Network has launched a first-of-its-kind V2X project! Within the Masters of Mobility program, students are developing programming, mechatronics, and 3D printing skills to solve real world, authentic problems. With the support of partners from CTN, Harman, P3 Group, and Washtenaw Community College students and teachers are experiencing leading edge connected vehicle technology.
Square One has added two outstanding project specialists to our staff to develop this project and provide support throughout the year–teachers JC Irvine and Bob Jones.
