Cavnue, a new subsidiary of Sidewalk Infrastructure Partners, aims to build road infrastructure that can accommodate autonomous vehicles (AVs). The public-private partnership between the state Michigan and the company will start with a two-year feasibility study on a 40-mile AV corridor that connects Detroit to Ann Arbor, including stops along the way. Connected autonomous buses and shuttles will first use the lane before expanding access to autonomous freight and private vehicles. Clients should note that while autonomous infrastructure projects like these are in early stages, they could become the next step between geofenced autonomy (Level 4) and autonomy without conditional restrictions (Level 5).
