The Canadian Urban Transit Research & Innovation Consortium (CUTRIC) spearheads, designs, and launches technology and commercialization projects that advance next-generation mobility and transportation technologies across Canada. It also develops low-cost simulation tools that help transit agencies across Canada and the United States predict how their electric buses, hydrogen fuel cell buses and autonomous smart vehicles (for first mile/last mile solutions) will operate in real-time on their roads and in service.
These advancements help to grow the low-carbon and smart technology eco-system across North America, leading to job growth and economic development over the long-term.
CUTRIC’s work generates solutions that decrease fuel consumption, reduce emissions, eliminate redundancies, reduce congestion, improve quality of life for mobility customers and transit riders.
In sum, CUTRIC supports the development and commercialization technologies required for a 21st century low-carbon economy.
To make Canada a global leader in low-carbon smart mobility technologies across heavy-duty and light-duty platforms, including advanced transit, transportation, and integrated mobility applications.
To support the commercialization of technologies through industry-led collaborative research, development, demonstration, and integration (RDD&I) projects that bring innovative design to Canada’s low-carbon smart mobility eco-system.
