Baro Vehicles, a startup developer of semi-autonomous compact vehicles, has taken brand new workshop space at MIRA Technology Park, to develop its Baro One Golf Car, a semi-autonomous golf car.

It chose to locate its business in the UK due to the ready availability of materials and the well-established skills infrastructure on offer and aims to launch its first semi-autonomous golf cart by the end of 2017.

Over the next five years, Baro Vehicles hopes to expand its team with 50 new experts, including a mixture of engineers and administrative staff.

CEO and co-founder of Baro Vehicles, Gabriel Giani, said, “The UK, and the midlands in particular, has a strong reputation for software skills with local universities specializing in connected and autonomous vehicle technology. These skills will be essential as we look to significantly grow our business over the next five years.”
