Wipro Limited, a global information technology, consulting and business process services company, has announced the launch of an Automotive Innovation Center in Detroit, Michigan. The company says this state-of-the-art technology hub will deepen Wipro’s relationship with Detroit’s automotive community, develop and showcase next-generation technologies and solutions for automotive OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers, insurers, technology companies and others.
This center adds to Wipro’s existing footprint in Detroit. In 2017, Wipro opened an Automotive Engineering Center in Detroit, which leverages local talent for the design, development and validation of automotive cockpit electronic products such as navigation systems, connectivity systems, instrument clusters, head-up displays, advanced safety systems, vehicle diagnostics and advanced analytics and end-to-end connected vehicle solutions.
Wipro’s new Automotive Innovation Center will develop and showcase cutting-edge solutions that leverage artificial intelligence, analytics, Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT), cloud and crowd sourcing. Wipro says the hub will “evangelize” connected vehicle technologies with In-vehicle Human Machine Interface (HMI), on-board sensor data management, big data insights and end-user mobile apps for delivering personalized driving / mobility experiences.
Wipro’s AutoInsights connected car platform uses telematics to capture vehicle data for a high-performance analytics engine. The data insights captured by this engine offers a wide range of capabilities to vehicle owners, telecom companies, insurers and other stakeholders in the automotive ecosystem.
The center will serve as a hub where automotive manufacturers, technology partners, auto industry forums and analysts can collaborate on disruptive ideas.
