Mobililty Innovation Zone

Welcome to the future of mobility.


The point where human interest and capital interest intersect. A center of gravity that attracts the very best people and ideas and accelerates them forward. Turning opportunity into outcome and explorers into experts. Innovation comes from anywhere, and from here, we're taking it everywhere.

    The Mobility Innovation Zone


    AllianceTexas is home to the Mobility Innovation Zone (MIZ), a one-of-a-kind infrastructure in North Texas offering mobility visionaries full access to an unparalleled testing ecosystem, resources, and partnerships essential to comprehensively test, scale, and commercialize your technologies.

      Use Cases


      The Hillwood team 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.

      UAS Proving Grounds

      As technology advancement of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) outpaces regulation, the establishment of a UAS Proving Grounds within the Mobility Innovation Zone will allow for private- and public-stakeholders to accelerate the development and commercialization of UAS technologies and solutions while informing the future regulatory framework in suburban and urban settings.

      Watch innovation take flight at the AllianceTexas Flight Test Center.

      Autonomous Trucking

      Commercial AV technology will transform freight transportation, driving cost savings and operational efficiency across the supply chain.

      The MIZ is driving a set of AV Freight use cases - from drayage to short-haul and long-haul to last-mile - to realize the value represented by the end-to-end autonomy and integrations.
