French Company Joins Forces With US Campus To Make Self-Driving Buses

By

The University of Michigan is on the path to bringing autonomous buses on campus during this upcoming school year. NAVYA, a French company that holds a partnership with Mcity, is building a facility to create these vehicles that will open in the fall. Ann Arbor could join the few cities in the United States that are currently testing public buses on the road.

Two driverless ARMA buses will be cruising around campus when the new school year begins. They will have a two-mile route in an area that isn’t heavily congested with traffic. These buses will be evaluated by NAVYA and they’ll use that information when creating more of them at their new assembly factory in Saline, Michigan. There’s only a nine-mile distance between Saline and Ann Arbor.
