The Mobility Innovation Zone

Mobility of goods and people is experiencing rapid growth and transformation, driving opportunity for innovation and partnerships across industries. As leading innovators move beyond small-scale pilots into next-level deployments, AllianceTexas provides a unique "sandbox" for NextGen mobility.

The AllianceTexas Mobility Innovation Zone offers existing and built-to-purpose mobility infrastructure, capabilities and services tailored to start-ups and corporates, and public-private stakeholder engagement to accelerate the commercialization of innovative mobility technologies across modes.

Use Cases

In April 2019, Hillwood convened a diverse set of stakeholders to identify priority mobility use cases, and understand their needs in a built environment and the hurdles to commercialization.

The session helped launch the initial two focus areas for the AllianceTexas Mobility Innovation Zone: a holistic UAS Proving Grounds for aerial technologies and a set of Autonomous Trucking use cases expanding from short to long-haul.
