    August 2015 We have officially received our first vehicle for the UM:SmartCarts project! In this project, we'll be developing an autonomous transportation network for the University of Michigan Engineering campus, allowing us to study the problems that arise when developing next-gen networks.

  • July 2015 - MCity is official open! The University of Michigan's one-of-a-kind vehicle testing facility was designed to allow researchers to study both connected and autonomous vehicles. Check out the press release here

  • June 2015 - The APRIL Lab visited the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center (MUTC) in Butlerville, IN to do field testing of our new fleet of MAGIC robots. We were able to run missions in facilities ranging from underground tunnel networks to shanty towns. Thanks to the folks at MUTC for being great hosts!
