Technology major Continental\u00a0Corporation has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with IIT\u00a0Madras to take up research in high computing platform and\u00a0cyber security for power train applications.\u00a0The partnership with IIT Madras addresses cyber security\u00a0for conventional drive trains and would focus on intrusion\u00a0detection and reporting on power train applications, a press release issued by Continental Corporation said here. Together with IIT Madras, Continental would conduct\u00a0research and technologies that involve "time deterministic"\u00a0behaviour on power train controllers and its applications, the\u00a0statement said.\u00a0"Vehicles of tomorrow are computers on wheels, opening up\u00a0areas of research hitherto unaddressed. Continental is\u00a0implementing a sustainable growth strategy with a high-level\u00a0of investment in research and development and in capacities\u00a0for future technologies", Continental Power train Business\u00a0Head Soorajith Radhakrishnan said. Commenting on the signing of MoU, IIT Madras Dean\u00a0(Industrial Consultancy and Sponsored Research), Ravindra\u00a0Gettu said, "this is our second MoU for joint research with\u00a0Continental this year.\u00a0"As an institution that is in the frontier of research,\u00a0we are pleased to collaborate with Continental. Our respective\u00a0areas of expertise are complementary.", he said. Earlier this year, Continental had signed an MoU with IIT\u00a0Madras for taking up advanced research in machine learning and\u00a0bio-inspired neural networks for Continental's Advanced Driver\u00a0Assistance Systems business, the statement added.
