Driverless technology has arrived in the Motor City. This week, Ann Arbor-based May Mobility is testing a pair of autonomous vehicles that will shuttle employees from Dan Gilbert's Bedrock between Cadillac Square and the Bricktown Parking Garage.

The testing will occur between 7 p.m.-10 p.m. Monday through Friday this week. The six-seat electric shuttles are manufactured by Medina, Minn.-based Polaris Industries Inc.
