L&T to train engineers on SDV for automotive OEMs

BENGALURU, India, October 31, 2023:. L&T Technology Services announced that it is leveraging Amazon Web Services (AWS) to help global automotive manufacturers accelerate the transition towards Software Defined Vehicles (SDVs). Moreover, they are using generative artificial intelligence (AI).

SDVs rely heavily on software to control and manage their operations, including performance and comfort. They use sensors and computer systems to make driving safer and more efficient. Digitally enabled vehicles facilitate safety, security, entertainment, and convenience through cloud-based over-the-air (OTA) software updates, driving significant improvements. This allows drivers to receive continued value from their vehicle, even after purchase. Furthermore, LTTS, using AWS, accelerates worldwide vehicle manufacturers’ next-gen SDV development with customized safety and security solutions, leveraging the cloud. Additionally, these solutions cover digital cockpit, connected services, and autonomous driving. LTTS expedited product launches by 25% using AWS virtual workbenches, enabling efficient software development for vehicle ECUs regulating operations.

To help vehicle manufacturers worldwide accelerate SDV development, LTTS uses Amazon CodeWhisperer as the preferred development environment for engineering teams. Amazon CodeWhisperer supports LTTS’ engineers by delivering real-time AI-driven code recommendations for swift development of intelligent applications. Moreover, these applications are designed to improve a vehicle’s performance on the road. Furthermore, this will allow fleet managers, maintenance staff, and other stakeholders to interact with and access details of the car. This interaction will be facilitated via large language models (LLMs) built on AWS.

LTTS is also using Amazon Bedrock—a fully managed service for accessing an array of leading foundation models and building and scaling generative AI applications. They are using it to implement cloud-based vehicle test automation and reuse already proven, good quality, safety compliance code. This helps them further reduce the time to develop new software applications. With AWS IoT FleetWise, a service that makes it easier for automotive companies to collect, transform, and transfer vehicle data to the cloud in near real-time. LTTS can improve vehicle quality, safety, and autonomy.

To provide employees with digital skills to accelerate innovation, LTTS embarked on an ambitious training program with AWS. Moreover, the company’s Global Engineering Academy helps in continuous skilling for staff, including generative AI workshops with AWS. By March 2024, the academy will train 1,000 engineers globally on vital cloud skills and applications, including Amazon CodeWhisperer. This training will help them to develop SDV software and applications faster.

“Generative AI is ushering in a new era of possibilities for the automotive industry. With AWS cloud services, we are able to innovate rapidly to help our customers improve mobility,” said Alind Saxena, President, Sales and Whole Time Director at LTTS. “As we embrace the power of AI and cloud computing, not only are we innovating, but we are also revolutionizing how we drive. To drive this transformation, we commit to training 1,000 engineers on generative AI with AWS by March 2024. By doing so, we guarantee that the brightest minds and the most cutting-edge technology shape the future of mobility.

“As India’s automotive sector races towards modernization, cloud technologies, including artificial intelligence, are the engine propelling. A future of smart, connected vehicles,” said Vaishali Kasture, Director (Commercial Sales) of AWS India and South Asia at Amazon Web Services India Pvt. Ltd. “We’re thrilled to help innovators like LTTS harness the full potential of cloud and generative AI to drive innovation in the industry. This is achieved with a digitally-skilled workforce. Additionally, together, we’re not just building cars – we’re building experiences, driving efficiency, and creating a smarter tomorrow.”
