Unleashing the power of 4D imaging radar technology, Wipro Engineering Edge partners with Spartan Radar to redefine advanced driving systems on the cloud car platform.
Wipro Limited, a global leader in technology services and consulting, has unveiled a strategic partnership with Spartan Radar, a trailblazer in automated mobility sensor software. This alliance has materialized through Wipro’s Engineering Edge business line. Concurrently, Wipro Ventures, the corporate investment division of Wipro, has made a substantial investment in Spartan Radar’s Series B funding round.
Why It Matters
This partnership and investment carry significant potential for both parties. Spartan Radar’s pioneering software-defined 4D imaging radar technology will be harnessed to develop cutting-edge Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) on the Wipro Cloud Car platform. The developed solutions will be made available to Automotive Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and their direct suppliers. By providing assisted and automated driving solutions, Wipro and Spartan aim to raise safety standards and allow drivers to upgrade their vehicles with the features they desire.
Thomas Mueller, CTO of Wipro Engineering Edge, shared his vision of empowering OEMs to install a sophisticated, economical sensing stack on every vehicle. This will make each car capable of advanced driver support and conditional autonomous driving, and Wipro’s Cloud Car platform will bring Spartan’s technology to leading OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers.
Nathan Mintz, CEO and Co-Founder of Spartan, expressed how their software-enabled 4D high-resolution imaging radar aims to address the shortcomings of traditional radars. Collaborating with Wipro’s Cloud Car team will allow them to deliver high-quality, safe, and cost-effective improvements to the automotive industry.
The integration of Spartan’s products into Wipro’s Cloud Car Data Engine and AI pipeline IP will empower OEMs to offer on-demand ADAS features. By enabling auto manufacturers to build vehicles that continuously improve, this partnership has the potential to shape the future of the automotive industry and redefine advanced driving systems.
