Ontario is launching a new pilot to allow for the testing of automated vehicles on Ontario roads, stated a press release Tuesday.

The pilot project will allow companies to do their research and development here, to help bring automated vehicles to market.

Currently there are almost 100 companies and institutions involved in the connected vehicle and automated vehicle industry in Ontario, which will become the first province to test the technology in Canada.

“In the world of transportation, Ontario has the opportunity to show leadership on automated technology. Today, Ontario is making its claim in the global marketplace by taking the next steps in automated vehicle innovation. The automated vehicle pilot will ensure that the province’s roads remain safe without creating burdens that stifle investment and innovation in Ontario’s dynamic business environment.” -Steven Del Duca, Minister of Transportation.

“Ontario is a global leader in developing and manufacturing the next generation of vehicles. This new pilot program will build on our success, and help Ontario lead the development of automated and connected car technologies. In this highly competitive global economy, investing in people’s talents and skills to create the next generation of innovative technologies is good for business, and can help lead to the easier movement of goods and services across the province.” – Brad Duguid, Minister of Economic Development, Employment and Infrastructure.
