DETROIT — The Indian IT giant Wipro Ltd. (NYSE: WIT) announced the launch of an Automotive Innovation Center in Detroit.
The company said the new tech hub will deepen Wipro’s relationship with Detroit’s automotive community, develop and showcase next-generation technologies and solutions for automakers, suppliers, insurers, technology companies, and others.
The company said the Wipro’s Automotive Innovation Center is located in Troy. It’s a 1,500-square-foot collaboration hub that will help automotive organizations develop cutting-edge products, services, and intellectual property that seamlessly integrate artificial intelligence, analytics, Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT), cloud and crowd sourcing, along with Wipro’s technology partner ecosystem, industry partner network and automotive consultants and experts.

This center adds to Wipro’s existing footprint in Detroit.

The new hub will study the intersection of connected vehicle technologies with In-vehicle human-machine interface, on-board sensor data management, big data insights and end-user mobile apps for delivering personalized driving and mobility experiences.
This is best illustrated by Wipro’s AutoInsights connected car platform that 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.
