Nexteer Automotive is expanding its global operations with two new facilities in southern India: a new software center in Bengaluru to support growing demand for software-enabled functionality in advanced steering applications and a new production facility in Chennai to manufacture Nexteer's safety-critical Electric Power Steering (EPS) systems and driveline products.
Bengaluru Software Center
To address the industry's growing need for software in safety and performance, Nexteer launched its India Software Center (ISC) this week in Bengaluru. The new facility focuses on downstream software production and validation – ensuring quality and compliance with regulations. Meanwhile, Nexteer's Global Technical Center in the US, in tandem with regional Technical Centers in Poland and China, will continue upstream software development and R&D innovation.
“Software plays an increasingly important role in the safety and performance of Nexteer's advanced steering systems," said Robin Milavec, Vice President of Global Engineering, Nexteer Automotive. "We view our software and electronic capabilities as key differentiators – especially as the market demand and steering function complexity grows with driver assist features and varying levels of automated driving. Nexteer is committed to deploying a best-in-class global team that delivers innovative solutions with speed, flexibility and seamless vehicle integration."
