The CEFC will enable ‘SAMARTH Udyog Bharat 4.0’, for the benefit of the industry at large, and more specifically MSMEs and start-ups

Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) has signed a memorandum-of-understanding (MoU) with Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati for establishment of a common engineering facility center (CEFC) titled ‘Digital Twin Center for Emerging Automotive Systems’ in hub-and-spoke model.

The systems are aimed at creating synergies between the industry ecosystem and the academia through IITs by leveraging their knowledge. The  facilities can be used across industries, especially by micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) and start-ups, for developing technologies, experimentation, design, simulation and validation. 

The digital twin system aims to digitise data and system. This will enable effective tuning of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) models. Implementing digitisation in material development and manufacturing processes will eliminate the need for physical prototyping.

The entire facility is being established in Hub and Spoke manner with hub in Pune, spoke-1 in Bengaluru and spoke-2 in Guwahati. The hub and spokes are being connected digitally to facilitate ease of access to the tools from  different locations.

ARAI will be setting up digital connectivity with the hub and spoke-1 for access to AI and ML tools and integrated computational materials engineering (ICME) software with spoke-2 at IIT Guwahati.

A general purpose hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) system would be installed at IIT Guwahati for enabling digital twin creation for systems for development of control systems and validation.

IIT Guwahati will give space, infrastructure, utilities required for the equipment and will in turn get access to the systems for their educational and research activities.

The CEFC is being established under Capital Goods scheme phase-2 of  Ministry of Heavy Industries (MHI) by ARAI along with industry partner Micelio Mobility Pvt. Ltd.
