UK to sign ‘Brexit deal’ with Detroit to develop new technology

Driverless cars are one of many innovative products which could be a step closer after a ‘breakthrough Brexit deal’ was signed with a US state.

The UK is set to sign a memorandum of understanding to collaborate with the US state of Michigan – which is home to Detroit, the centre of the country’s car industry.

Michigan State Governor Rick Snyder said the world is on the brink of a revolution in the car industry thanks to driverless vehicles.

And he said the deal will allow the UK and Michigan to share and hone technology so they can be at the forefront of the transformation.

In Coventry, England we had a tour of the Manufacturing Technology Center, which brings together many major manufacturers to research and develop new technology. There is a presence of many major MI employers, such as @FANUCAmerica @BoschRexroth and @KUKA_RoboticsUS #InvestinMI pic.twitter.com/QBkFdues1x

Mr Snyder said: ‘It’s a great opportunity. There’s so much we can do together in terms of looking at the future of autonomous vehicles, mobility, and the supply chain to deliver those things.

‘It’s about sharing test facilities, protocols, learning experiences.

‘We just opened a 500-kilometer test facility for autonomous vehicles in Michigan — we can do great partnerships.

‘We are the world’s leader in mobility. Seventy-six percent of all U.S. auto industry R&D happens in Michigan.’
