"The University of Michigan’s campus in Ann Arbor, MI has launched the testing phase of a passenger service for two driverless shuttles on a set route," reports Chris Teale.

The shuttles will be built by French company Navya in the nearby town of Saline, Michigan. Navya also launched a similar pilot run for driverless shuttles on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus this month, and is already testing vehicles in Las Vegas, Paris, and Christchurch.
