USA: a ghost town to test driverless cars

Known as MCity, this town resembling a Hollywood studio stretches over 32 acres.

Simulated building facades, fake mechanised cyclists, pretend inhabitants but real road signs and symbols! The objective being to test driverless cars in real-life situations.

Several manufacturers have pooled together (GM, Ford, Toyota) with Michigan University and the mapping company HERE to run this project. The decision to carry out these tests in real-life conditions will without a doubt avoid people getting hurt. Let’s not forget that Google car has had 14 road accidents since its launch. At the beginning of 2016, an accident killed a driver of a Tesla in self-driving mode.

A town where the future of mobility is being created far away from human eyes.
