Automakers and researchers say a new simulated city at the University of Michigan could help speed the e27961a3-3b5f-4236-97cb-ba21d4639a91.jpgdevelopment of driverless and connected cars.


Ann Arbor is a pretty good idea for testing real world conditions of autonomous cars. A prior project in that city called Connected Vehicle Proving Grounds was not able to gather much momentum or paying customers. With the catchy title of self-driving, marketing savvy may prove a site like this will be good for interoperability testing if the millions of funding can be captured from future customers.
