Connected vehicle technology has been evolving over the past decade to address customer's needs and the convergence of technological solutions into the mobility space is gaining further relevance. At Mahindra we have always been technological pioneers with several technology firsts to our credit. DiGiSENSE is a modular, scalable, flexible and robust connected vehicle platform that has been conceived and brought to life by Mahindra by bringing together an entire ecosystem of stakeholders.
