EKA Partners with NuPort to Introduce AI-Enabled Buses in India

EKA electric vehicle manufacturer has partnered with NuPort Robotics to incorporate Level 2 autonomy within its electric buses in India.

This is the first initiative in the country to use level 2 autonomy and artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance electric buses on Indian roads. Throughout the partnership, EKA will test a range of NuPort’s autonomous features to improve safety, reduce the environmental footprint, and increase operational efficiency for its electric bus models. The technology will then be deployed in over 5000 buses in India.

Dr. Sudhir Mehta, Chairman, EKA & Pinnacle Industries Limited, said:

“Our partnership with NuPort ensures that our electric buses are not only environmentally friendly but also futuristic through incorporation of artificial intelligence thereby making our buses efficient and safer to operate on Indian roads. This collaboration strengthens our goal of positioning EKA as the leader in the electric vehicle industry in India. I am confident that both EKA & NuPort will provide a safer, greener, and much more efficient transportation for Indian roads.”

NuPort Robotics aims to fully develop and deploy its technology in India to provide commercial vehicle manufacturers with AI-enabled autonomous solutions that are specifically designed for Indian roads and the complexity of Indian traffic.

Alongside NuPort’s autonomous solutions, EKA will provide the electric vehicle platform to work towards the commercialisation of AI-enabled electric buses in India.

Raghavender Sahdev, CEO of NuPort Robotics, said:

“The current project with EKA allows us to set the first precedent in India for a Level 2 AI-enabled smart electric bus. Partnering with EKA on this initiative allows us to work with a leading national manufacturer and learn and develop technology solutions specifically for Indian driving conditions. NuPort’s focus on innovation, sustainability, automation, and artificial intelligence is aligned perfectly with EKA’s principles and vision leading to this strategic partnership between the two companies.”
