Dr. Shittu Awarded $120,000 Grant from Toyota Mobility Foundation

August 14, 2017

Dr. Ekundayo Shittu has been awarded a one-year, $120,000, Toyota Mobility Foundation grant for his project, “Developing an Architecture for a Replicable Mobility System.” Accompanying the UN’s projected growth of global population by 83 million people annually are problems with urban mobility systems, such as limited accessibility and affordability, congestion, and environmental issues. The policies to curb these problems are increasingly becoming perverse. This project will explore the boundaries of replication by developing an integrated system of systems architecture for the transfer of sustainable mobility platforms from “smart cities” with successful implementation strategies to target cities.
