Detroit area's cutting edge center for self-driving autos is set to open

The only engineering facility built expressly to test self-driving vehicles officially opens Wednesday at the historic 335-acre Willow Run site just west of Detroit.

The American Center for Mobility will be home to automakers, suppliers and other groups developing technology for autonomous vehicles and smart infrastructure. It provides unrivaled facilities to test self-driving vehicles, just as public concern over the technology crescendos after a pedestrian was killed by an autonomous car this month.
