The Mcity driverless shuttle began operating on the University of Michigan's campus in June 2018. This report focuses on how the researchers collected data and designed the project in order to achieve the project goals of leaning how people react to riding in the shuttles and a how road users interact with the driverless shuttles.

Key findings

Researchers added microphones and cameras on the inside of the vehicles to better observe  riders.

On-board attendants had extensive training prior to campus demonstrations. The testing  included over 14 hours of training in the test facility followed by two weeks  of training on the route.

The University of Michigan partnered with JD Power, a global market research  company, to conduct and analyze survey results.
