Editor's note: An earlier version of this story mischaracterized Aptiv. It was formerly known as Delphi Automotive and is not a spinoff.
Aptiv will open a technology center in Boston next year to expand engineering efforts and test autonomous-vehicle programs.
The multifloor center, which is slated to open in the Seaport neighborhood, will employ 300 people, according to an Aptiv spokesperson.
Aptiv, formerly Delphi Automotive, will use the center to develop and introduce mobility pilot programs to help lessen congestion and increase access to public transit in neighborhoods that lack it.
"Aptiv intends to apply its mobility solutions to assist the city of Boston with all of its smart city activities, specifically, the 'Go Boston 2030' initiative that envisions a more efficient transportation network by leveraging automated mobility," Glen De Vos, Aptiv's senior vice president and chief technology officer, said in a statement.
