Robot cars get 32-acre city at University of Michigan to hone skills
A simulated city opened July 20 on the north campus of the University of Michigan to test how self-driving cars will travel in the future without mowing down pedestrians or causing colossal crashes. "We had the faculty here at the university design the fully evolved future," Peter Sweatman, head of the Transportation Research Institute, which oversaw the creation of the M City test facility, said in an interview. "After all, we’re replacing humans with machines and those machines need to be able to operate in a full, rich environment."
