Continental-NTU Corporate Lab is a S$50 million joint corporate laboratory between NTU and Continental that focuses on developing technologically advanced solutions in the areas such as autonomous robotics, navigation, artificial intelligence (AI), cybersecurity, smart materials, sensing, communication, and cloud technologies for future urban mobility applications. We aim to accelerate innovation in Singapore’s automotive industry and translate research outcomes into practical and viable urban mobility solutions for the future.
Continental-NTU Corporate Lab is supported by the National Research Foundation Singapore (NRF) under the Industry Alignment Fund-Industry Collaboration Projects (IAF-ICP) scheme. Over 5 years from 2020 - 2024 , Continental-NTU Corporate Lab will work on 16 industry-focused projects under three research thrusts. These 16 projects will draw on the expertise of faculty members and scientists from NTU’s engineering and social-science schools and its research institutes, and Continental’s wealth of industrial experience, to generate game-changing solutions that can be translated into actual products or services for Continental’s customers.
