The Mcity Driverless Shuttle will begin operating on North Campus on June 4. It is the nation’s first driverless vehicle research project focusing on user behavior and data collection.
The project will use two fully automated, 11-passenger, all-electric shuttles manufactured by French firm NAVYA. The shuttle will cover a roughly one-mile round-trip route contained to the North Campus Research Complex, carrying students, faculty and staff to the complex from more distant parking.
It will also provide easy access to the U-M/Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority bus stop at Hubbard and Hayward streets. Future plans include route expansion and accessibility research.
