General Motors is creating an engineering team dedicated autonomous driving as it pushes to build self-driving cars and other connected car technology.

The automaker says the team will help accelerate the company’s technical capabilities and create the future direction of GM vehicle programs, according to an internal corporate announcement. The team will be solely responsible for all critical technologies in the car including electrical design, controls and software, and safety integration, according to GM.

Doug Parks, who was most recently vice president of the company’s global products programs, will lead the team. The company made several other personnel changes in the autonomous vehicle team, all of which go in effect Feb. 1. Pam Fletcher, the executive chief engineer of the company’s global electric vehicles, will be responsible for the fleet of autonomous Chevrolet Volts being tested on GM’s campus. She also will lead a team focused on strategic planning and competitive assessments within the autonomous and electric vehicle space. All rights reserved.
