Ontario is investing $80 million over five years in the autonomous vehicle innovation network (AVIN) in Stratford.
The province is partnering with the Ontario Centres of Excellence to launch AVIN, which includes a Demonstration Zone allowing researchers to develop the technology and test an autonomous vehicle in real-life traffic scenarios.
“AV technology is advancing at an incredible pace. There’s no doubt that the cars of the future will soon be our reality in Ontario and around the world,” said Kathleen Wynne, premier of Ontario. “We have an opportunity to make sure our province is a global leader in this revolution, continuing to draw C/AV investment and jobs to Ontario with our highly skilled workforce. By drawing from our province’s tremendous pool of talent, we are bringing together academia and industry to develop the next generation of transportation technology — all right here in Ontario.”
