London, UK. 24 May 2023 – Wipro Ltd,a technology services and consulting company, has announced a partnership between its engineering edge business line and Spartan Radar, an automated mobility sensor software provider, to build advanced vehicle solutions. In conjunction with this agreement, Wipro Ventures, Wipro’s corporate investment arm, announced that it has invested an undisclosed sum in Spartan Radar’s series B funding round.

The partnership, and investment, will allow Wipro to leverage Spartan Radar’s software-defined 4D imaging radar technology to build advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) on the Wipro Cloud Car platform. The joint solution will be available to automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their direct suppliers (Tier 1 suppliers) to enable assisted and automated driving solutions. These cost-effective solutions will enhance safety and allow drivers to upgrade their cars with the features they desire.

“Most vehicles come with pre-set ADAS features that cannot be upgraded or retrofitted,” says Thomas Mueller, chief technology officer, Wipro Engineering Edge. “Our goal is to enable OEMs to install a highly capable, affordable, sensing stack on every single vehicle, thus making every car capable of advanced driver support and conditional autonomous driving. Our cloud car platform will bring Spartan technology to OEMs and Tier 1s, helping them deliver future-ready, cost-effective ADAS that support seamless scalability.”

“Spartan fills the gaps in today’s ADAS and tomorrow’s autonomous vehicles,” says Nathan Mintz, chief executive officer and co-founder of Spartan. “Our mission is to fundamentally resolve the shortcomings of radars, such as poor resolution, minimum range, and AI integration to create a disruptive, software-enabled 4D high-resolution imaging radar. Working with the Wipro Cloud Car team will allow us to equip the sector with high-quality safety improvements that are cost-effective.” 

In addition, Spartan products will be integrated into Wipro’s cloud car data engine and AI pipeline IP, allowing OEMs to deliver on-demand ADAS features. This partnership will enable automotive manufacturers to build cars that continuously improve.
