EKA partners with NuPort Robotics to bring advanced driver assistance systems to their electric bus.

EKA will use NuPort's AI tech to bring Level 2 autonomy to their electric buses in India.

Indian EV and technology company EKA has partnered with autonomous trucking company NuPort Robotics to introduce the ADAS technology to their electric buses.

NuPort Robotics is a Canada-based autonomous trucking company. It develops AI technology to improve transportation safety, increase efficiency and reduce costs for clients in retail, logistics, and manufacturing. Autonomous driving technology enables heavy commercial vehicles to drive optimally and safely on high-frequency, repetitive routes.

With this partnership, EKA will use NuPort’s AI tech to bring Level 2 autonomy and ADAS to their electric buses in India.

EKA has started testing the AD(Autonomous Driving) features in its electric buses. After proper testing, EKA will invest INR 150 crores to deploy more than 5000 electric buses with the AD tech. The company expects that bringing this technology will contribute to a sustainable and safe future of transportation.

NuPort Robotics is also planning to set up operations in India and fully develop and deploy its technology in India for commercial vehicle manufacturers, beginning with electric vehicle manufacturers.
