The two organisations have jointly set up the Wipro IISc Research and Innovation Network (WIRIN), a hybrid industry academia collaboration unit, which will drive idea discovery, research and innovation in technology and product design.

A group of senior professors and research staff from IISc and engineers, developers, architects and researchers from the autonomous systems, robotics and 5G domains at Wipro will constitute the team at WIRIN. They will focus on the research and development of cutting-edge technologies in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Visual Computing, Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and Vehicle-to-everything communication (V2X). The insights from the research will be leveraged by Wipro for its customers and the industry ecosystem. The Institute will benefit from advancing its research goal and capacity building besides commercialisation of the research outcomes.

Speaking about the collaboration, Abidali Z. Neemuchwala, Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Wipro Limited said, “We are excited to collaborate with the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, one of the most prestigious research institutes in the world, to develop innovative solutions for autonomous systems, robotics and 5G. This is a significant step towards strengthening our position to be at the forefront of these transformative technologies.”

“IISc believes collaboration between academia and the industry is a great way of solving challenging real-world problems. We welcome and thank Wipro for supporting this high-impact, collaborative research and innovation initiative to solve complex problems in autonomous vehicular systems, robotics and 5G. We are confident that the strong technology capabilities and capable talent from both organisations will come together to make notable strides in these domains,” said Anurag Kumar, Director of IISc Bangalore.

“As part of Wipro's focus on emerging technologies and innovations, we have made key investments in the autonomous systems, robotics and 5G domain. Wipro's technology expertise and understanding of domain-specific business challenges coupled with IISc's distinguished research capabilities will create the right synergies to solve complex industry problems and develop next-gen mobility solutions. This collaboration will enable accelerated development and adoption of autonomous systems and V2X for our customers,” added K R Sanjiv, Chief Technology Officer, Wipro Limited.

Wipro has been investing in the area of autonomous systems and robotics for over eight years. Autonomous systems work at the convergence of several emerging technologies and are poised to disrupt multiple industries and verticals such as mobility, insurance, finance, smart cities and infrastructure, among others.

Wipro has developed multiple solutions such as large-scale simulators for autonomous systems, including a grounds-up autonomous vehicle built on a Wipro IP platform capable of perceiving and navigating through state-of-the-art cognitive algorithms and capable of seamless V2X communications based on 5G systems and services.
