What Do You Call a Canadian Self-Driving Car? ‘Autonomoose,’ of Course

Ontario is one of the top jurisdictions in North America for auto assembly, and the province is hoping to grab some of the billions of dollars being spent to develop vehicles that can travel without a driver touching the steering wheel, accelerator or brakes. Minister of Transportation Steven Del Duca said Ontario wants to be a “world leader in automated technology.” The first three 10-year pilot projects will be led by the University of Waterloo, auto manufacturer Erwin Hymer Group and software developer BlackBerry QNX.
