- A second set of startups joins Software République’s bespoke incubator program and includes Basemark, CommuniThings, Compredict, CORE for Tech™, Entropy and Neovya
- The first Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD) solution to be developed will initially serve Dacia to assess driver fatigue and suggest when and where to rest
- Basemark and CORE for Tech are part of the BYOD project to improve the driver and passenger experience
Paris, September 19, 2022 – Software République, an open innovation ecosystem for smart, safe and sustainable mobility founded by Atos, Dassault Systèmes, Orange, Renault Group, STMicroelectronics and Thales, today announces that six new startups will join its incubator increased the total to ten startups in his program.
Launched in March 2022, the tailor-made incubator program has a dual purpose: to accelerate joint projects with the selected start-ups and to strengthen the open innovation of the six founding companies.
Two of these startups are CORE for Techa deep tech company that measures and estimates sleepiness while driving, and basic mark, a software company providing development tools for the automotive industry. Both join as part of Software République Bring your own device (BYOD) Project aimed at improving the driver and passenger experience by developing new features using the customer’s own smartphone or tablet.
As part of the BYOD project, Software République is collaborating at the suggestion of its first customer, Dacia CORE for Tech to develop a unique feature to enrich Dacia’s Media Control App. This new feature suggests when and where to rest along the route to help drivers plan their journey safely. Based on an algorithm unique on the market, coupled with camera-based technology, it takes into account the driver’s physiological characteristics, the driving route and the driving conditions (weather, traffic, road type).
Software République plans to further develop these and other features as part of the BYOD project to offer innovative use cases for the automotive industry. These use cases will be available to all vehicle manufacturers and fleet companies.
The two startups created as part of the BYOD project are:
- Basemark provides tools for software-defined vehicle development. The start-up is the developer of Rocksolid Core – the world’s first automotive end-to-end operating system and platform covering all vehicle functions for software-defined vehicles. Applications built with Rocksolid Core can run on several different underlying hardware components.
CORE for Tech
- CORE for Tech increases driver safety by providing predictive information on fatigue and drowsiness. His solution not only predicts sleepiness, but does so in conjunction with the journey to be made.
The incubator Software République will integrate four other start-ups:
- CommuniThings is a smart parking company active in road routing and parking control. Its IoT platform consists of ground sensor or camera detection and an extensive service portfolio for end-user guidance and parking monitoring. As a pioneer in EV space management, CommuniThings deals with EV space reservation, payment and optimization of space usage.
- A German start-up offering AI-enabled virtual sensors. This technology can replace and simulate existing hardware sensors in vehicles and enhance available vehicle data. The knowledge gained through virtual sensors enables predictive maintenance and new service options for vehicle manufacturers.
- Entropy supports territories in optimizing shared mobility services. His artificial intelligence model predicts the mobility needs of the population of today and tomorrow. It promotes a transport service that is as needs-based as possible in order to meet our social and ecological challenges.
- Neovya accelerates the transition to a smoother, safer and more sustainable mobility system by providing expert mapping, data analysis and simulation software solutions. Its flagship solution is Neovya Hubsim, a collaborative web platform that allows territorial stakeholders to understand the issues, endlessly test projects and make informed decisions.
