Magna is to open an engineering hub to expand its advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) capabilities in Timisoara, Romania.
The hub’s operations are scheduled to begin before 2023. To support the center, approximately 300 engineers are expected to be hired by the end of 2025. Magna will work with engineering services and recruitment partners to complete these objectives.
The recruited team will work on future systems, algorithms and software development to deliver next-generation ADAS solutions such as automated highway driving, parking assist and surround view to the global automotive market. The expansion is intended to capitalize on the increasing demand for safety and driver-assistance features in mobility.
Sharath Reddy, senior vice president at Magna Electronics, said, “Expanding our capacity in Timisoara, an area that is known for its strong electronics engineering network, will help us accelerate Magna’s overall ADAS capabilities and time-to-market. We expect the contributions of this team to be immediate and are looking forward to getting started.”
