Abiding by his ideology of automation and its impact on the development of the country, Infosys CEO Vishal Sikka arrived in a driverless automated golf cart at the company headquarters in Bengaluru ahead of a press conference on the company’s Q1 results.

He posted a photo of himself on his Twitter handle. According to the post, the car was designed and built by the Infosys engineering service team at the company’s Mysuru campus.

In previous conferences also, Sikka has pointed out advances in computer processing speeds, implying a growth spurt in the area of Artificial Intelligence.

Infosys posted strong first-quarter numbers that beat market expectations, driven mainly by strong spending from top financial services and European customers. India’s second largest software services exporter also raised its full-year revenue guidance, halting a streak of three consecutive quarters when the company was forced to slash its revenue growth outlook.
