June 1, 2020—The Michigan Economic Development Corp. will give grants to five companies that are working toward technological transportation solutions, reports The Detroit News.

The companies are working on self-driving vehicles that provide contactless deliveries, self-disinfecting technology and, more simply, pedestrian barriers in the Detroit metro area.

One of the grants are going to a North Carolina-based company, Pratt Miller, that is developing a disinfecting robot that could autonomously work in areas like airports, according to the report.

The grants total $280,000.
