Michael Noblett has resigned as CEO of the American Center for Mobility after less than a year heading the autonomous and connected vehicle test facility outside Detroit.

Mark Chaput, who currently is chief operating officer, will head the complex, located in Ypsilanti, Mich., on an interim basis. AMC says it is conducting a national search to find a permanent CEO.

The 500-acre facility has struggled to attract customers since it opened two years ago. Last month, Noblett told Crain's Detroit Business that MCity in nearby Ann Arbor and other testing facilities are “significantly cheaper” than AMC.

Noblett was hired in February, about six months after former CEO John Maddox left to join Lyft Inc. as senior director of autonomous safety and compliance. Kirk Steudle served as interim CEO prior to Noblett.
