Sim City, population: Zero. Researchers at University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute and Xerox are building a 32-acre fake city, complete with intersections, construction, traffic signals, and every other complication of city life that a driver might encounter, except people. They will be testing cars that can communicate with each other, as well as infrastructure, to automatically pay tolls or find open parking.
