Michigan plans special robocar/ADAS smart highway on I-94; a dumb highway is better

A recent announcement from the state of Michigan and the Cavnue consortium (Pronounced “cavenue”) outlines how it has raised $130M and will build a special corridor on I-95 between Detroit and Ann Arbor for “CAVs” or Connected Autonomous Vehicles. The plan is to develop “connected road” features, “adding the roadway into the connected driving experience.” This goes against the development path taken by most, if not all of the leading self-driving car developers, who prefer the decentralized “smart vehicle” approach over the more centralized and infrastructure based “smart road” approach.
