Wipro Limited, a prominent worldwide information technology, consulting, and business process services firm, announced the debut of its “Cloud Car” platform, which will be unveiled at the MWC Barcelona panel “Engineering the Cloud Car Ecosystem.”

Wipro’s Cloud Car platform will combine Wipro FullStride Cloud Services and engineering expertise with a best-in-class partner ecosystem and consortiums. The platform will provide automakers with a comprehensive, cloud-native software solution with an end-to-end cybersecurity system to help them develop faster at a lower cost and keep software-defined vehicles (SDVs) digitally relevant for years, a first in the industry.

“Today, most SDVs come with pre-set features that are difficult and time-consuming to upgrade, rendering them outdated as new technologies come to market. Our goal is to make it possible for automobile manufacturers to deliver vehicles that get better every day, so both they and generations of owners can drive better return on investments,”

said Thomas Mueller, CTO, Engineering and R&D Services, Wipro Limited. 

Wipro’s Cloud Car platform will disconnect previously integrated software and hardware, allowing manufacturers to evaluate and upgrade software on a digital scale never before seen. As a result, future generations of car owners will be able to personalise their vehicles to meet their specific and evolving demands. Automobile makers, on the other hand, will be able to fix software issues with over-the-air updates rather than physical recalls. The ‘always-on,’ ‘feature-on-demand’ functionality will be backed by a strong cyber security and functional safety architecture, and it will help boost the residual value of automobiles.

“By 2030, the vast majority of new vehicles will be SDVs. These cars will connect in real-time with the world around them. They will leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning to constantly gather data, provide valuable information and, eventually, make autonomous decisions. Unlocking the true potential of SDVs will require moving them to the cloud. We are fast-forwarding to that future by making the Cloud Car ecosystem available to every automotive company in the world today,”

said Thomas Mueller, CTO, Engineering and R&D Services, Wipro Limited. 

The Cloud Car platform will also use a ‘shadow mode’ architecture, which will work in the background, gathering and combining data from sensors and cameras, as well as the driver, to aid in the validation and safety of autonomous functions over time.
