India's homegrown technology giant Infosys revealed its efforts in developing autonomous technology for vehicles. CEO Vishal Sikka arrived at the company's media briefing in a 'driverless' cart, a vehicle which has been indigenously built by the company's engineering services team.
A tweet by Sikka read, "An autonomous vehicle for me and Pravin(COO) built right in Mysore @Infosys Engg Services! Who says we can't build transformative technologies?"
Sikka added that the autonomous vehicle is a symbol of cutting edge technology and is aimed at training other employees on new technologies like artificial intelligence.
The 'driverless' cart is laced with sensors and is capable of sensing its environment and navigating without any human intervention. Also, advanced control systems support these vehicles to identify navigation paths, as well as obstacles and road signage.
