ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A research scientist at the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute is being honored by the White House for his work.

James Sayer is among 11 “White House Transportation Champions of Change” from around the country. They were selected by Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx and the White House for leadership and innovation in transportation. An event is Tuesday.

The theme is “Beyond Traffic: Innovators in Transportation for the Future.”

The White House notes Sayer was instrumental in developing the school’s vision for introducing connected and automated vehicle technologies. This year, the school opened “M City” - a testing site for connected and driverless cars that simulates a cityscape.

The 32-acre site on the university’s Ann Arbor campus has roads, building facades, a roundabout and other driving features.
