Press release

Pune, India Date: May 08, 2023: Tata Technologies, a global engineering and product development digital services company, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with TiHAN IIT Hyderabad, to collaborate in the areas of Software Defined Vehicles (SDV) and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).  As Automotive companies strive to develop SDVs with autonomous technologies, they look for innovative solutions and accelerators that help them reduce technology incubation time and cost. Tata Technologies and TiHAN will collaborate towards solutions that address these specific challenges being faced by companies in developing SDVs that incorporate the latest technologies. The collaboration will specifically focus on

· Development of platform/s and Proofs of Concept (POC) that optimize product development timelines.

· Enabling upskilling and hands-on training for Tata Technologies engineers at TiHAN in new technology areas.

We believe that this collaborative approach to innovation will help drive the future of the automotive technology and contribute to a more sustainable, connected, and technologically advanced industry.

Reflecting on the collaboration with IIT Hyderabad TiHAN, Warren Harris, MD, and CEO of Tata Technologies, said, “We believe that automotive companies rely on Tata Technologies to address their product development challenges and enable them to conceptualize, develop and realize better products that are safer, cleaner, and connected. Through this collaboration with TiHAN, IIT Hyderabad, we aim to collaborate and support innovations in the area of SDVs and associated technologies that help automotive manufacturers develop and manufacture great products. We will leverage our 25+ years of automotive domain knowledge and access to customers across the globe to help TiHAN-IIT Hyderabad develop a comprehensive set of solutions and accelerators for the automotive industry and upskill engineers on emerging technologies.”

Prof B S Murty, Director, IIT Hyderabad, expressed his congratulations to both TiHAN-IITH and Tata Technologies on their collaboration. He emphasized the potential for significant innovation in the automotive industry that can result from this collaboration. Prof. Murty also highlighted the TiHAN Testbed, a state-of-the-art facility, and the first-of-its-kind in the nation, which is a dedicated facility for testing and validating a wide range of use cases of autonomous vehicles. He expressed his confidence that this collaboration will propel progress of innovative solutions for autonomous navigation with potential global impact.

Sriram Lakshminarayanan, President & Chief Technical Officer of Tata Technologies, expressed his enthusiasm for the collaboration, stating, ” We can leverage our collective expertise and resources to explore use cases for SDV by adopting modern System on Chips (SoCs), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Over the Air (OTA) frameworks, and connected technologies within the realm of Software Defined Vehicles. We believe that this collaboration will support the creation of solutions in SDVs, reaffirming our commitment to advancing the industry towards a technologically advanced future.”

Prof. P. Rajalakshmi, Project Director, Dept. of Electrical Engineering at IIT Hyderabad, stated, “TiHAN at IITH has been established to focus on the research and development of autonomous & intelligent navigation systems.
