The collaboration with the MIH Consortium will enable Tata Technologies to collaborate with other members on solutions and capabilities that deliver value for its stakeholders and enable it to innovate new solutions.
Tata Technologies said its goal is to help its global clients engineer better products through “compelling product engineering and digital solutions across the product development value chain – from concept design to product engineering to digital manufacturing and after-sales service solutions.”
The MIH Consortium is creating an open EV ecosystem that promotes collaboration across all stakeholders, including OEMs and Tier I suppliers, in the mobility industry to realise and standardise EV technologies that underpin the EV revolution, the statement said.
