Ford is the first automaker to test autonomous vehicles at Mcity – a simulated real-world urban environment at the University of Michigan, USA. The 32-acre facility is part of the university’s Mobility Transformation Center.
Mcity provides real-world road scenarios – such as running a red light – that cannot be replicated on public roads. There are street lights, pedestrian crossings, lane markings, bike lanes, trees, pavements, signs, traffic lights – even construction barriers.
