Daimler is to further invest in the Tsinghua Daimler Joint Research Center for Sustainable Transportation to further research efforts into automated driving and intelligent mobility.

The centre was opened in 2012 to develop sustainable, innovative mobility solutions that meet China’s specific needs. Daimler has now extended its cooperation with Tsinghua University for an additional three years, which comes with an annual investment of several hundred thousand US dollars.

Prof. Yang Bin, vice president of Tsinghua University, said, “The Tsinghua Daimler Joint Research Center for Sustainable Transportation combines our exceptional research capabilities with Daimler’s long heritage in automotive innovation.

“With its scope now expanding to automated driving and intelligent mobility, I look forward to continuing our important research as we jointly move the field of sustainable transportation forward.”
