Interested in getting the ‘inside information’ on the research that is happening at MSU related to automated/autonomous vehicles? What can we expect to see soon in this area? How about in a decade or even in 50 years? Will we see more automated vehicles appearing in the Lansing area? On campus? Will there be a proving ground on campus? What will it look like?
