nuTonomy, an MIT-affiliated autonomous vehicle startup, just raised a big $16 million Series A round of funding.

Although they are Boston-based, their immediate goal is to build a self-driving taxi fleet for Singapore.

In addition to Singapore, nuTonomy is operating self-driving cars in Michigan and the United Kingdom, where it tests software in partnership with major automotive industry players such as Jaguar Land Rover.

This is a nice win for them, and the participation of Highland Capital Partners (Boston’s premier venture capital firm) shows that autonomous vehicle development can succeed outside of just Silicon Valley and Detroit.
