    Toyota will convert a 60-acre Ottawa Lake, Mich. site into a test drive facility for autonomous vehicles (AVs), to "safely replicate demanding 'edge case' driving scenarios too dangerous for public roads," according to the press release.

    The goal is to "push the limits of our technology and move us closer to conceiving a human-driven vehicle that is incapable of causing a crash."

    The testing facility will include congested urban environments, slick surfaces and four-lane divided highway with high-speed entrance and exit ramps.
