Wipro, an Indian-based technology and consulting group, has announced the opening of an Automotive Engineering Centre (AEC) in Detroit. The centre aims to drive innovation in connected vehicle concepts – design, product engineering, digital customer-vehicle experiences, artificial intelligence, and sensors-driven advanced vehicle data analytics.
Wipro says its AEC is part of a vision to build a global network of delivery centres that offer ‘best-in-class engineering and IT services, augmented by leading-edge automotive domain and digital solutions’.
The centre will serve as a hub to support the automotive engineering and IT requirements of automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers based in North America.
Wipro says the AEC will ‘leverage local talent for delivering product design and supporting the development and validation of automotive cockpit electronic products such as navigation systems, connectivity systems, instrument clusters, Head-Up Displays (HUDs), advanced safety systems, vehicle diagnostics and advanced analytics, and end-to-end connected vehicle solutions’.
“Wipro is committed to addressing the local and global needs of its engineering customers, and assisting them in gaining both scale and time-to-market advantages,” said Anita Ganti, Senior Vice President and Global Head, Product Engineering Services, Wipro Limited. “This centre, located in the automotive hub of Detroit, will enable us to deliver differentiated connected automotive engineering and innovation-led solutions for our customers.”
Alex Beylin, Vice President and Global Automotive Business Head, Wipro Limited said: “This centre will showcase Wipro’s automotive engineering and digital technology capabilities and will also enable effective collaboration within the South-East Michigan automotive community.”
Wipro says it has over two decades of experience in delivering differentiated solutions for leading global automotive electronic Tier 1 suppliers and OEMs and has been a ‘trusted partner in their digital transformation journey’.
