The American Center for Mobility is officially open for business in Ypsilanti Township.
Over 100 people attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday morning at the historic Willow Run site. The 500-acre site is now being used to test autonomous vehicles.
"As they go through the analysis of what happened in Arizona, that needs to be a learning experience that all the industry, all the academic people need to look to, to say, how do you prevent that situation from happening again."
The facility includes a 2.5-mile highway loop and 700-foot curved tunnel among other road features. It was announced that Microsoft will provide the center with cloud resources and data infrastructure.
