Chelsea - do you envision Michigan Tech as a human/tech/mobility pseudo-experimental living laboratory? We could study benefits and challenges of user interface and user experience with an eye for improving the adaptability of end users. I would find this very interesting.

Yes exactly, Mari! I think our students are interested in active learning, research experience, and technolgical innovation. Our campus has enormous potential for implementing technological innovation. These assets make it an ideal environment for a research-learning-living laboratory where we’re collecting data, potentially as seed or preliminary data for future/larger projects. I find this very interesting too!

I like the concept of Mobility being applied broadly outside of transportation. The concept can be so broad - nearly the same as "change". What do you see as the benefit of thinking about our research in terms of "Mobility"? Does it open up specific funding mechanisms or collaborations?

I would be happy to discuss how we could re-propose to the NSF Smart and Connected Communities planning grant, and include any MTU folks interested in the idea of mobility/connectivity of marginalized communities. Proposal is due in Feb, so we would have to move soon

Nice discussion! Thanks panelists!Getting philosophical, mobility is often about spatial movement. Even social mobility is framed as "moving up". But we are all moving through time, too. That is, we necessarily have (one way) temporal mobility. Sustainability is about how we choose which future we are moving towards.

This is an excellent point, Sarah, thanks!

Thanks Sarah! Very true.

I am interested in collaboration on autonomous snow driving, sensor fusion and AI. narawash@mtu.edu

@ Ana: mobility vs change- To me mobility implies a planned direction of some kind (forward, up, here, there), vs change, which can be accidental, unintended, or random.
Ana Dyreson

Thanks for those thoughts.

@ Sarah - that is a good distinction on mobility vs. change. This conversation helps to draw out the nuance..
