NuPort signs MoU with EKA



Robotics, has signed an MoU with EKA, an electric vehicles and technology company, to introduce smart e-buses. NuPort

Robotics will introduce level two autonomy in the form of advanced driver assistance systems in these electric bus models. This is another feather in the cap for NuPort as it looks at utilisatio­n and incorporat­ion of progressiv­e level two autonomy and Artificial Intelligen­ce (AI) for electric buses on Indian roads. EKA will test the new and advanced technology provided by NuPort before deploying it in over 5000 buses. It involves a minimum investment of nearly Rs. 150 crores in innovation and contributi­ng to the future of transporta­tion and sustainabi­lity. The autonomous features introduced by NuPort will help improve safety, reduce environmen­tal footprint, and increase operationa­l efficiency of the vehicles on Indian roads. When deployed in CVs, such technology reduce crash rates by nearly 50 per cent.
