Test center gives glimpse into world of autonomous vehicles

A 500-acre test facility for autonomous vehicles recently held an open house to show how companies are using lane detection, mobile apps to inspect poor roads and new methods of detecting pedestrians in the quest to make driving safer.

Those were a few of the innovative concepts demonstrated in June at the American Center for Mobility in Ypsilanti. The center plans to open entirely by the end of 2019 to companies wanting to test vehicles and self-driving technologies.

The center recently hosted several vehicle and technology companies to show work being done there by companies already using the test facility.
