ROYAL OAK – World renown auto expert David Cole, Chairman of Auto Harvest, an Ann Arbor-based web-based innovation ecosystem focused on autos and manufacturing, talks about a study that rated the auto companies on how well they are doing in autonomous vehicle technology. Ford and GM were Nos. 1 and 2. Michigan is working hard to become the nation’s center for this technology leveraging the technology that comes out of MCity at the University of Michigan and a new driverless car vehicle testing center at the Willow Run Airport.
