Advanced R&D with real-world test sites, rich data and analytics

Join CITM and you’ll have access to our Smart Transportation Network + DataStor, Ontario’s only live, multi-site, 5G research and development (R&D) network for electrified vehicle and connected and autonomous vehicle (C/AV) innovation.

Test your intelligent transportation hardware, software, and artificial intelligence (AI) in real-world conditions and use the rich datasets generated by the vehicles and devices using the network.

Smart city environments, compute at the edge capability

CITM provides two environments in Hamilton with sophisticated infrastructure to validate your intelligent transportation technology in a real-world city setting – real streets with real intersections, real cars and real people.

smart transportation network and datastor for research and development

Network Infrastructure:

  • 4G and 5G connectivity
  • Fibre optic connectivity
  • Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) connectivity
  • IoT roadside sensors, including: high-definition cameras, Radar, Lidar, environmental, and audio

Choose the environment that suites your needs

Choose from two smart transportation network environments, with more on the way:

Urban: public network in a high-density commercial area located in Hamilton’s escarpment area provides a complex traffic management environment with high-traffic roads, sidewalks with moderate pedestrian traffic.

Office Park: private network located at McMaster Innovation Park features a simpler environment with low-traffic roads, light pedestrian traffic, managed crosswalks, and parking lots.

Powered by leading-edge technology platforms

Our technology partners provide access to their platforms plus personnel and engineering resources, development tools and developer support.
