Global automotive supplier Continental and IIT-Madras have signed a MoU for advanced research in machine learning, according to a report in The Hindu Business Line.
Bio-inspired neural networks help solve problems on the basis of biological knowledge about how the human brain learns and processes information and thus have become increasingly important for industries and businesses.
IIT-Madras — known for its capability in machine learning and bio-inspired neural networks — will contribute to Continental’s ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) business.
The collaboration is code-named Project NeuroMotive and will aid Continental’s long-term strategy for ‘Vision Zero’ – a future with zero accidents – through innovations and ongoing improvement of components and systems making a decisive contribution to greater road safety.
Continental has eight plants and a technical centre in India that supports global R&D. The company employs over 7,000 people across 15 locations in India.
