Crozet driverless car company to expand
The Daily Progress Friday, October 06, 2017 at 9 p.m.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe estimates that by 2025, self-driving cars will “all over the streets.” To hit the gas on that projection, a Crozet-based technology company will invest $3.8 million to expand its research and development operation in Albemarle County.
McAuliffe was joined by local politicians from both sides of the aisle on Friday at Perrone Robotics, a developer of autonomous car software that has operated in Crozet since 2003, to announce the expansion and take a test drive in one of Perrone’s self-driving sedans.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership will support the company’s expansion through its Virginia Jobs Investment Program, which provides consultative services and funding to companies creating jobs.
