When it becomes operational this October, the new site will be used exclusively by TRI to safely replicate demanding "edge case" driving scenarios, too unsafe to perform on public roads.

In an effort to ensure that the public is safe during the testing of autonomous vehicles during their final development stages, Toyota is creating a huge, 30-acre test facility in MI.

TRI is Toyota's research arm, which aims to enhance the safety of automobiles, increase access to vehicles for those who otherwise can not drive, and accelerate scientific discovery by applying techniques from artificial intelligence and machine learning to other areas in order to lower costs and improve performance.

Toyota is set to test driving too risky for public roads at a new MI closed-course facility for automated-technology development.

This is why the Toyota Research Institute has announced that they are constructing a closed-course test facility to test what they are calling "edge case" driving scenarios for self-driving cars.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has red-hot warning for Real Madrid
Overall we handled the situation well apart from the last 10 minutes. "We knew it was important to score and get one early on". They've given some daft goals away, they've got into some bad habits.

Though TRI is leasing the land from MITRP, Toyota is responsible for design, construction and maintenance of the facility.

The TRI facility will be constructed inside MITRP's 1.75-mile oval test track, and include congested urban environments, slick surfaces and a four-lane divided highway with high-speed entrance and exit ramps. The site went on the market after Dana's 2006 bankruptcy and was ultimately bought by Michael Jones and Roland Brodbeck who quickly reopened it as an automotive proving ground. As part of the partnership, though, Toyota will have access to the existing oval track, on-site facilities and services.

After a fatal collision between an autonomous Uber SUV and an Arizona pedestrian raised concerns about the safety of self-driving technology, some auto companies seemed unfazed.

"We will resume testing on public roads in a few weeks, once these three systems have been more closely aligned", the spokesman said.
