The facility is a collaboration with Intel Corp and is scheduled to open in 2014, the company said. It will employ a team of about 30 infotainment specialists, including 16 software engineers.
The Portland center would lead Jaguar Land Rover's development of vehicle infotainment systems and would also collaborate with other technology partners. The facility would also complement Jaguar Land Rover's infotainment team based at its engineering center in Gaydon in the U.K.
In the future, the Portland technology center will also complement the research projects that will be undertaken by the Jaguar Land Rover R&D team at the National Automotive Innovation Campus at U.K.'s Warwick university when it opens in 2016.
Wolfgang Ziebart, Jaguar Land Rover Engineering Director, said the new center would allow for development of new technologies to drive the appeal of the company's products in the future.
