The contributions expected from the Optimus Ride employees will be valuable as Magna builds on its strengths and position as a global ADAS provider with comprehensive capabilities.
“Growing our engineering bench strength in sensing hardware and software helps accelerate our path forward in a rapidly growing ADAS market,” said John O’Hara, President of Magna Electronics.
The team now under contract by Magna remains in Boston’s Seaport district, establishing a Boston-based engineering center and presence for Magna in a community rich in engineering talent, leading academic institutions and robotics.
“As advancements in autonomy continue, we saw an opportunity to bring in additional expertise to support current programs as well as future customer needs. We are happy to welcome the Optimus Ride employees to the Magna family,” added O’Hara.
