Ireland's highly skilled and "very special" workforce could make a Shannon-based autonomous car project a world leader within five years, the head of Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) worldwide claimed last night.
Dr Ralf Speth said the company's new 150-job software engineering centre at Shannon - to develop advanced automated driving and electrification technologies - could "create something very special" due to the skilled and "passionate" workforce.
The CEO's comments followed his visit to the site earlier yesterday. Prof Speth was speaking last night a gala event to mark the opening of a state-of-the-art Spirit Jaguar Land Rover outlet at Arena Road, Sandyford Business Park, Dublin.
The opening of the outlet coincided with the unveiling in Ireland of the company's first electric vehicle, the I-PACE.
Meantime, the Shannon centre will play a vital role in the company's plans for electric and automated driving vehicles, Dr Speth said.
