Mobility & Vehicle Technology Research Center (MOVE)

The extensive automotive research by the automotive research cluster of King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT) throughout the past years has clearly signified the profound interest of next generation automotive technology from both government and private sectors at home and abroad. At the same time, the considerable rise in electric vehicle industry in Thailand and sheer volume of international collaborations between universities and external agencies in undertaking research, academic services and the signing of memorandums (MOU) have been witnessed all along.

Aiming to encourage continued cooperation among lecturers, researchers and students from various faculties to keep abreast with new technologies, KMUTT has therefore established Mobility & Vehicle Technology Research Center (MOVE)on January 13, 2020. Developed from the automotive research cluster of KMUTT, MOVE is affiliated to the Institute for Scientific and Technological Research and Services (ISTRS). We focus on serving as a unique resource for industry, academia, government laboratories and other organizations by fostering the integrated management and sharing thefacilities to undertake research on the next generation automotive technologies that are commercially viable in the future.
