April 8, 2016—The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) said Thursday that it will open an autonomous vehicle research facility in Ann Arbor, Mich., according to a report from Automotive News.

“Beyond the extraordinary work that the U-M is doing broadly in advancing automotive safety research—and in autonomous driving, in particular—Toyota has deep roots in the Ann Arbor community,” Gill Pratt, chief executive officer of TRI, said. 

The new location, the third of its kind in the U.S. in addition to MIT and Stanford University, will open in June and will eventually staff around 50 employees.
