Rockwell Automation opens EV Innovation Center in Silicon Valley

Rockwell Automation has opened a new 8,000-square-foot Electric Vehicle Innovation Center within an existing development facility in San Jose, California. The center will provide live manufacturing demonstrations, hands-on trials utilizing new technology, and events showcasing collaboration with industry experts and Rockwell partners.

Using augmented and virtual reality modeling, Rockwell hopes the EV Innovation Center will provide automotive start-ups and established manufacturers with an opportunity to learn new technologies and standards and enable them to deliver EVs to market faster, with less risk and at lower cost.
