Visitors to the ITS America Annual Meeting Detroit will have an opportunity of getting a sneak peek at the American Center for Mobility at Willow Run - which only opened a few months ago, and is part of the event’s Technical Tour Program.

The tour will take place on Tuesday 5 June from 08.30 – 12.00 with participants able to watch an automated driving demo and tour the US DoT-designated proving ground. Initial testing environments of the new facility feature a 2.5 mile highway loop integrated with what was once US 12, a 700' curved tunnel and bypass, on- and off-ramps and a boulevard complete with Michigan left turns.

The Technical Tour Program also include OnStar, the brand that started the ‘connected car’ back in 1996. The OnStar Command Center Tour will showcase how the service has evolved over the years while also providing a look behind the curtain. This tour explains how OnStar is able to provide connected services for nearly 14 million customers around the world.

Additionally, there is a tour of the University of Michigan’s connected and automated transportation research facilities and programmes, including Mcity, the Ann Arbor Connected Vehicle Test Environment, Simulator Lab, and the Michigan Traffic Lab, the traffic management centre for the Mcity Test Facility. Visitors will ride in connected and automated vehicles while touring the test facility, drive in a connected vehicle in the largest real-world CV deployment, and ride in a vehicle simulator.
