HYDERABAD: IIT-Hyderabad (IIT-H) will collaborate with Suzuki Motor Corporation to develop technology for India-specific autonomous cars, by integrating sensors for perception, localisation and navigation with drive-by-wire vehicles.
An MoU in this regard was signed in 2021 by the institute and the firm, to improve road safety and reduce accidents through technology.
The state-of-the-art autonomous vehicle testbed at the department of science and technology’s national mission on interdisciplinary cyber physical systems (NM-ICPS) technology innovation hub on autonomous navigation and data acquisition systems (TiHAN) at IIT-H will be used to test and validate the technology.
“SMC has collaborated with IIT-H in the development of autonomous driving technology to resolve problems such as vehicle collision and traffic congestion in India. We look forward to working with IIT-H on advanced mobility technology and strengthening human resources for international collaborative research and development,” said Kurachi Nobunari, department general manager, SMC.
