Tata Elxsi and Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Join Forces to Develop Advanced Automotive Cybersecurity Solution
Tata Elxsi (NSE:TATAELXSI) is among the world’s leading design and technology service providers across industries.
The company recently announced the joint development of an Automotive Cybersecurity Solution in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) under the existing Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
This joint development will leverage Tata Elxsi’s well-established and industry-acknowledged expertise in artificial intelligence and machine learning, as well as its business focus on software-defined vehicles (SDV) and EV solutions. It will be complemented by the advanced research capabilities of IISc.
Objectives of the TATA Elxsi IISC Cybersecurity Collaboration
The partnership aims to address the cybersecurity challenges posed by complex in-vehicle networks of sensors and the continuous advancements in software that define the modern driving experience. Advances in vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-anything (V2X) connectivity have presented more opportunities for theft, remote control, tampering, and the unauthorized access of personal information. Meanwhile, IISc researchers are separately focusing on developing automotive vehicle technologies, network security, smart grids, and other critical systems.
This collaboration will also emphasize security and threat detection in connected automotive vehicles, utilizing AI and ML-based intrusion detection. The partnership will work to prevent and detect potential security threats and anomalies while providing insights into future and potentially more advanced threats within the system.
Tata Elxsi has already spearheaded some of the best-in-class features for threat detection, threat prevention, and secure updates, addressing privacy concerns in line with the latest regulatory and compliance requirements that drive the security solutions landscape in the realm of connected vehicles. This partnership will substantially expand their product portfolio.
