MACKINAC ISLAND, MI (AP) -

Michigan, long known for leadership in the Auto Industry, wants to lead a new automotive campaign.

It's called "Planet M" and it was introduced Wednesday at the Mackinac Policy Conference on Mackinac Island.

The State is promoting itself as a hub in the advancement of Self Driving and Connected vehicles.

Michigan is expected to have two autonomous vehicle test sites by 2017.

Engineers are developing self driving vehicles and cars that communicate with warning technology that will be built in to roads and bridges.
