Michigan Appears to Be the Driverless Vehicle Testing Capital
Michigan appears to be the proving grounds for driverless vehicle technology.
The U.S. Army plans to test their driverless vehicle technology in June. The test will take place on 1-69 in St. Clair and Lapeer Counties. The Army will have a driver in place just in case things go awry. Click here for the full story.
Michigan was chosen for the testing because of its proximity to an international border crossing and to the Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center's headquarters at the U.S. Army Detroit Arsenal in Warren, said public affairs officer Doug Halleaux.
Google is also building a self driving vehicle test facility in Novi. Click here for that story. Google says they will be moving into the 53 thousand square foot facility by the end of the year.
