Ford First To Test Driverless Cars In The Fake Town Mcity

Ford is eager to stay ahead of the competition and Mcity is part of their strategy to do so. As Michigan University director of Mobility Transformation Center Peter Sweatman explained, “The goal of Mcity is simply to get the technology off our fake streets and on to real streets as quickly as possible.” According to a release from the company, every mile of driving in Mcity is like 10, 100 or even 1,000 miles of on-road experience because of all the obstacles that can be packed into the artificial environment. Still, there are factors that can be difficult to test.
