Continental, IIT Madras Join Hands for Research in Safe Mobility Solutions

Technology firm Continental recently entered into a partnership with Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras for advanced research in machine learning for safe mobility solutions.

The two partners have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for collaboration in ‘Project NeuroMotive’ to develop technologies that aid partially automated driving, the company said in a statement.

IIT Madras, with its known capability in machine learning and bio-inspired neural networks, will contribute to Continental’s ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems) business that provide drivers and passengers with additional safety and an increase in comfort, it added.

Commenting on the partnership, Prashanth Doreswamy, Market Head of Continental India and Managing Director Continental Automotive, India, said the company is committed to strengthening academia connect in the region, through win-win partnership models.

“Further, he added, ‘Project NeuroMotive’ is only a first step in our collaboration with IIT Madras. Continental will continue to invest in the technologies of tomorrow. As a technology company, we focus on making future mobility concepts a reality,” he said.

The collaboration will aid Continental’s long-term strategy globally towards ‘Vision Zero’ – a future with zero accidents – through innovations and ongoing improvement of components and systems making a decisive contribution to greater road safety, the company said.

“IIT Madras’ expertise in bio-inspired neural networks can help expand the scope of what assisted driving functions can accomplish,” said Ravindra Gettu, Dean (Industrial Consultancy and Sponsored Research), IIT Madras.
