With technology progressing at such a rapid rate, it can be difficult to keep up with all of the innovation. The University of Michigan, always at the forefront of cutting edge research, has proposed a $6.5 million track to test automated vehicles. The facility will be a part of the Mobility Transformation Center, which launched in May, and will likely be the first of its kind. Self- piloted vehicles will navigate through a city like setting, avoiding obstacles while merging between lanes. Officials hope the new track will help solidify Ann Arbor as a major hub of automotive technology.
