Motorola Solutions opens innovation centre at US university

Motorola Solutions has opened its first college campus innovation centre at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Research Park.

The centre will employ undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of backgrounds and talents to focus on developing products, applications and services in key growth areas, including command centre software and video security and analytics.

“Partnering with the University of Illinois provides access to a depth of talent across a number of disciplines, encouraging research in areas that are critical to Motorola Solutions’ future,” said Kelly Mark, Executive Vice President, Services & Software, Motorola Solutions and University of Illinois alumnus.

The centre has capacity for up to 40 interns with an option for full-time employees in the future. Interns and employees will work directly with Motorola Solutions staff to help move ideas to test mode more quickly.

“We are excited to welcome Motorola Solutions to the Research Park. Their presence offers new opportunities for collaborations around some of the most critical elements of our public safety infrastructure,” said University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Chancellor Robert J Jones.

“The Motorola Solutions design centre is an example of our university strategic goal of establishing ourselves as a testbed for the technologies and services that will enable the safe, healthy and sustainable communities of the future.”
