Aptiv, formerly known as Delphi, recently opened a new technology centre in Boston’s Seaport District as a way to expand its engineering footprint in the U.S. as it focuses on developing and advancing vehicle technology.
“Boston has become a leading global city for the development of autonomous driving solutions, making it the ideal location for our new technology centre,” said Kevin Clark, president and chief executive officer at Aptiv.
The company already has technology centres in Pittsburgh and Mountain View, Calif. Which focus on automated mobility on demand and data management development.
Aptiv is eyeing the Boston area for connected and automated vehicle pilot programs.
“Aptiv intends to apply its mobility solutions to assist the city of Boston with all of its smart city activities, specifically, the ‘Go Boston 2030’ initiative that envisions a more efficient transportation network by leveraging automated mobility,” said Glen De Vos, Aptiv senior vice president and chief technology officer.
