Automated vehicles may soon be driving through a simulated city center and a four-lane highway built at the University of Michigan. Dubbed the Mobility Transformation Facility, the test environment will include roundabouts, stoplights, a railroad crossing, building facades, and even a mechanical pedestrian. Assistant professor of computer science Edwin Olson says that code is being written to allow researchers to trigger events like tricky traffic signal timings or ill-timed jaywalking. According to Michigan Engineering, the facility will model the kind of connected and automated mobility system that the University of Michigans Mobility Transformation Center is hoping to enable in Ann Arbor.
