Driverless car test site aims to open by fall

University of Michigan and state government officials aim to have a 32-acre driverless car test site running by September — in time for a global conference on intelligent transportation systems.
Gov. Rick Snyder and other state and university officials gathered Tuesday at Detroit’s auto show to outline plans for the Mobility Transformation Facility, a $6.5 million site on the Ann Arbor university’s North Campus.
It will offer a simulated urban environment with roads, intersections, building facades, traffic circles and a hill.
