Pittsburgh’s status as a world-leading hub for autonomous vehicle technology just got a big boost. Waymo, one of the industry’s leaders in self-driving tech, is opening an office in Pittsburgh. The company will join Aurora, Motional, Argo AI, Locomation and others in what has become a vibrant ecosystem of autonomous vehicle expertise and entrepreneurship.
“Pittsburgh is one of the main hubs for autonomous driving technology development in the U.S.,” says Julia Ilina, communications manager with Waymo. “With its top academic institutions and a long history of AV innovation, you can see why we’d be excited about Pittsburgh’s engineering and technology talent and world-class expertise in robotics.”
