The new centre will focus on developing cutting-edge solutions for the next generation of connected vehicles in areas like advanced driver assistance system, integrated cockpit system, in-car infotainment and telematics, the statement said.
The company, however, did not specify the cost of setting up the facility.
"Software is becoming a key differentiator in automotive today. With the centre, we aim to bring our key solutions closer to customers in the region," Sasken's President for global sales, marketing and business Hari Haran said in the statement.
The availability of talent has made the company open its facility in Detroit, said Sasken's Chairman Rajiv C. Mody.
"The facility will provide an opportunity for local engineers to work on cutting-edge technologies in automotive domain," he added.
