Tata Motors To Develop In-house Powertrain Control Software For EVs

Tata Motors, the country’s leading electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer, is creating its own software to control electric powertrains.

What Happened? Per a Hindu businessline report, the Tata Group company is developing the software internally for its own operations. As detailed in its 2022-23 annual report, this software will enable in-house control of electric powertrains, predictions, and high-fidelity powertrain plant models for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing.

To protect against cyber threats to its vehicles, Tata Motors is also taking steps. These include training staff and certifying vehicles to lessen risks associated with consumer data privacy and vehicle hacking.

As the company stated, the push towards autonomous driving and new regulatory requirements related to vehicle electronics increase the need for advanced technologies and processes to prevent potential risks.

In collaboration with Tata Power, the company also expanded its public charging infrastructure by nearly 2 times to 3,800 chargers in key areas across the country.

Additionally, over 900 common charging points have been installed in residential complexes in five major cities, and home charging has extended to more than 170 cities, improving customer convenience and experience, as stated by Shailesh Chandra, Managing Director of Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Limited and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Limited.
