Technology company Continental and Indian Institute of Technology Madras have joined hands for Advanced Research in Machine Learning. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed on May 4, 2018, between Continental and IIT Madras to take forward this partnership. IIT Madras with its capability in machine learning and bio-inspired neural networks will contribute to Continental’s ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) business that aims to provide drivers and passengers with additional safety and an increase in comfort. The collaboration, code-named Project NeuroMotive, 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.

Speaking about the MoU, Prashanth Doreswamy, Market Head of Continental India and Managing Director Continental Automotive, India, said, “ We believe industry-academia partnerships nurture innovation, entrepreneurship and skills development, which are value-add not just for the two partners, but for the ecosystem at large. 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.”
