Automotive company Geely Auto Group has opened a new research and development centre in Germany, focused on new propulsion systems and next-generation mobility technology. The Geely Auto Technical Deutschland (GATD) facility at Raunheim, close to Frankfurt airport, is expected to employ around 300 engineers and technology specialists within the next few years, as the group increases its presence in electrification and new energy vehicles. According to the company, the new centre will have a particular focus on developing premium electric cars, augmenting R&D already underway at facilities across Geely Auto’s network, including the Geely Research Institute in Hangzhou Bay, the China Euro Vehicle Technology (CEVT) in Gothenburg, and centres in Linjiang, China, and Coventry, UK.

The new research and development centre will report directly to Feng Qing Feng, the company’s Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. “We are delighted to extend our worldwide R&D capabilities to Germany, where we hope to take advantage of high-quality skills and technical capabilities in the country’s automotive industry,” said Feng. “Technologies developed at GATD will enhance the pace of innovation at our portfolio of brands, which are pioneering new systems in electrification, autonomous-drive systems and connectivity.” Check out the latest autonomous vehicle industry jobs here.
Cambridge University’s Department of Engineering has announced the launch of a new information engineering course with a focus on autonomous driving. The course for second-year undergraduate students, taught by Professor Roberto Cipolla, Dr Richard Turner and Dr Glenn Vinnicombe, aims to provide a unified view of information engineering, showing how signal processing, computer vision, machine learning and control relate to one another. As part of the course, example applications are drawn from autonomous driving, and guest lecturers from industry will introduce the students to the anatomy of a self-driving car and its autonomous driving hardware.

This course also aims to equip students with the ability to solve simple computer vision and machine learning problems, including object detection and segmentation, and sequential decision-making.” Guest lecturers invited to talk as part of the new course include Dr Alex Kendall, co-founder of Cambridge-based machine learning company Wayve. The firm has been testing its self-driving cars on the city’s roads since January 2018. Check out the latest autonomous vehicle industry jobs here. Send me Driverless Weekly Email
Local Motors , the developer of self-driving shuttle Olli, has appointed transit industry veteran Nicholas Cole as its new Senior Vice President of Sales. Cole will lead the company’s sales operations, with a focus on driving commercial adoption of its autonomous mobility products. Currently an industry consultant, Cole most recently led the expansion and transformation efforts for Avis Budget Group’s car-sharing network, Zipcar International, as it expanded into emerging markets using a franchise model he developed. Send me Driverless Weekly Email “Nicholas understands mobility without a doubt, but beyond that, he has a global mindset that can only be gained from the experience he’s had introducing new transit options around the world,” said Jay Rogers, CEO and co-founder of Local Motors. “The autonomous technology we are developing at Local Motors is in the hands of a highly-qualified and incredibly experienced ambassador eager to debut it on a world stage.” Based in Austin, Texas, Cole will focus predominantly on bringing Olli to the commercial market. Local Motors sees its electric self-driving shuttle as a sustainable transportation option for cities, companies, hospitals, campuses, stadiums and entertainment districts. The company recently launched an autonomous vehicle fleet challenge in the Greater Washington, D.C. area, which invites entrants to propose a short-term, local use for Olli. “On the surface, Local Motors is a vehicle manufacturing company,” said Cole. “When you look a little closer, we are really bringing a new transit solution to the mobility world.” “It is very exciting to be part of the future of mobility and I look forward to bringing the experience of our mobility solution to people around the world,” he added.
