TLALNEPANTLA – The country’s industrialists inaugurated the Industrial Innovation Center specialized in design and manufacturing for the automotive sector in Tlalnepantla, State of Mexico, a tool similar to the one Tesla has to manufacture its electric vehicles and with which the smart city of Singapore was developed.
“This tool is exactly the same tool that Tesla has for its electric cars, for its electric truck, but SpaceX was also conceived with these tools and Boeing has a 30-year contract with that tool, (…) We also talk about q Cities, with this tool that you are going to see became the digital twin of the city of Singapore, which we can consider one, if not it is the most prestigious Smart City in the world ”, explained Alfred Rodríguez, president of the Commission for Innovation and Industry 4.0 of the Concamin.
