Welcome to MCity, Michigan. No traffic cops needed here.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Sorry, Detroit, but there’s a new “Motor City” in Michigan.
On July 20, the University of Michigan announced the founding of Mcity, a 32-acre stretch of land on the Ann Arbor campus that no person will ever call home. Instead, driverless cars milling about Mcity’s urban and suburban environs will represent the “city’s” population.
By all appearances, Mcity is a real city complete with traffic lights, roundabouts, construction obstacles, sidewalks, streetlights and even a quaint downtown district -- an ideal place to test self-driving skills.
