Tata Elxsi partners with NI
Tata Elxsi has entered into a global partnership with National Instruments (NI), the leader in test, measurement and control solutions. Tata Elxsi and National Instruments will collaborate in the solutioning and implementation of test and validation systems for the automotive industry.
With the advent of features and technology such as advanced ADAS and Autonomous Driving, Connected Cars, and eCockpit systems, OEMs and suppliers are faced with challenges in the development and of increasingly complex and interdependent systems in the vehicle. These require highly integrated test solutions to enable the required levels of validation and quality, while automation becomes key to accelerate time-to-market. The partnership leverages Tata Elxsi’s world-class automotive systems development and validation expertise for functional and diagnostic requirements, control loop simulations, HILS setups, automated test frameworks and network management, with National Instrument’s platform-based approach in the verification and validation of safetycritical embedded control software/ systems.
NI is the pioneer for virtual instrumentation with its Lab View graphical system design platform. This software-centric platform for Radar, V2X, Infotainment, Test Cells and Hardware-In-the-Loop Simulation (HILS) systems, is widely adopted in the automotive industry. Tata Elxsi has been working on developing, integrating and using test rigs and HILS for multiECU testing. With this partnership, the two companies are working together to develop solutions targeted to specific automotive industry needs in Autonomous Driving, ADAS validation and HMI Validation for emerging features and use-cases.
Jayaram Pillai, Managing Director, NI – India, Russia, the Middle East and Africa said, “We at National Instruments are excited about the significant value this strategic partnership with Tata Elxsi brings to automotive customers. The limitless possibilities of National Instrument’s platform combined with the Tata Elxsi application expertise will enable our customers to rapidly realize next-generation ADAS and Connected Cars.”
