CNH Industrial has officially inaugurated its new India Technology Center (ITC) in the city of Gurugram, located southwest of the country’s capital New Delhi in northern India. This strategic hub, which employs over 100 people, is an integral part of the Company’s global R&D footprint focusing on Product Development and digital solutions.

Advanced simulation capabilities

The ITC is the first of its kind in the country for CNH Industrial, equipped with the latest technology and capabilities including an innovation center, vehicle simulation and a state-of- the-art Extended Reality/Virtual Reality laboratory to support global technology-led projects. The Center has been operational since March 2021 and considering its early returns, the addition of further design development spaces for additive manufacturing, embedded software, data analytics, and User Interface & User Experience (UI/UX) with advanced simulation capabilities are foreseen.

According to CNH Industrial this site is to play a strategic role for collaborative efforts with its sister R&D centers around the world to innovate and leverage the leading-edge technology and digital ecosystem in India, with increased efficiencies to benefit customers.
