Waymo Gets Approval to Open Driverless Car Factory in Michigan

Alphabet-owned driverless car company Waymo has received approval from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation to build an autonomous vehicle factory in the state.

In a Medium post, Waymo claims its factory will be the first in the world that’s entirely dedicated to the mass production of driverless vehicles. The company has yet to identify an exact location for its first facility, but it plans to hire “engineers, operations experts, and fleet coordinators,” to help “assemble and deploy our self-driving cars.”
