Aptiv has opened its Las Vegas Technical centre with the facility joining Boston, Singapore and Pittsburgh as one of the company’s major autonomous vehicle hubs.
The facility will house vehicle operations, research and development, data management and a technology demonstration centre.
The 130,000 sq ft facility showcases Aptiv’s end-to-end autonomous mobility business. Las Vegas is home to the company’s largest self-driving fleet—a portion of which is available to passengers through an ongoing partnership with Lyft enabling visitors and residents to hail an Aptiv AV to and from locations throughout the city. Rides are priced at the standard Lyft rate.
“With more than one million autonomous miles logged globally, Aptiv’s commercial AV pilots have proven our ability to launch, build and scale a successful, end-to-end autonomous mobility solution,” said Aptiv autonomous mobility president, Karl Iagnemma.
“The investment in our Las Vegas Technical centre gives us the ability to further advance the efficiency of our operations, gather key commercial AV learnings, and enhance safety operator training.”
Aptiv’s autonomous vehicles are supporting more than 1,600 destinations across Clark County and the City of Las Vegas, including entertainment venues, the Las Vegas Convention Centre and City Hall.
