American Center for Mobility opening at Willow Run touted as crucial for autonomous future

Government, automotive and tech leaders gathered in Ypsilanti Township on Wednesday to celebrate the grand opening of the America Center for Mobility.

Huddled in a tent on PlanetM Drive at Willow Run Airport, a procession of leaders spoke to the media and stakeholders of the autonomous and connected vehicles site's growing importance as intelligent vehicle systems become commonplace, particularly after the deadly crash in Tempe, Ariz., last month between an Uber autonomous vehicle and a pedestrian.
