Waymo to Build Plant in Michigan

On January 22, Waymo announced that the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) voted to approve its effort to establish a manufacturing presence to build self-driving vehicles in the state, creating hundreds of jobs along the way.

Waymo develops hardware and software in-house so that its self-driving technology works as a seamless, single system. A vital part of that process is integrating Waymo’s self-driving system into the vehicles purchased for its fleet, including Fiat Chrysler automobiles and the Jaguar Land Rover.
