Ford Launches Mobility Lab in Detroit
The future of real-world mobility will be the subject of a new research facility established by Ford in Detroit. Corktown, one of Detroit’s oldest neighborhoods, will become a learning lab for driverless vehicles.
With the cooperation of multiple stakeholders, including local government, Ford will use the neighborhood’s streets to study how new mobility systems will interact with existing infrastructure, including pedestrians. The main goal is to learn how real people will leverage new mobility solutions to get from place to place.
