GM added that the vehicles will be initially operated on the roads around its Technical Center in Warren, Michigan. The tests will eventually extend to the greater Detroit area.

The tests in Michigan will allow companies to test vehicles in snowy weather, which can be a challenge for cameras and sensors used by cars to navigate.
