- A second batch of start-ups joins the Software République tailor-made incubator program and includes Basemark, CommuniThings, Compredict, CORE for Tech™, Entropy and Neovya
- The first BYOD solution being developed is firstly for Dacia to estimate driver drowsiness and to suggest when and where to have a rest
- Basemark and CORE for Tech are part of the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) project to improve the driver and passenger experience
Software République, an open innovation ecosystem for intelligent, secure and sustainable mobility, founded by Atos, Dassault Systèmes, Orange, Renault Group, STMicroelectronics and Thales, today announces that six new start-ups are to join its incubator bringing the total to ten start-ups within its program.
Launched in March 2022, the tailor-made incubator program has a dual purpose: to accelerate joint projects with the selected startups and also to enhance the open innovation of the six founding companies.
Two of these startups are CORE for Tech, a deep tech company which measures and estimates drowsiness while driving, and Basemark, a software company offering development tools for the automotive industry. Both join as part of Software République’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) project which aims to improve the driver and passenger experience by developing new features using the customer’s own smartphone or tablet.
As part of the BYOD project, under the impulsion of its first customer Dacia, the Software République is working with CORE for Tech to develop a unique feature to enrich Dacia’s Media Control app. This new feature suggests when and where to take rest stops on the route, in order to help drivers plan their journey safely. Based on a unique-to-the-market algorithm coupled with camera-based technology, it takes into account the physiological conditions of the driver, the journey route and the trip conditions (weather, traffic, type of road).
The Software République plans to further develop this feature and others within the BYOD project to offer innovative use cases for the automotive industry. These uses cases will be available to all vehicle manufacturers and fleet companies.
The two start-ups incubated as part of BYOD project are:
Basemark offers 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 authored with Rocksolid Core can run on multiple different underlying hardware.
CORE for Tech
CORE for Tech enhances drivers’ safety by delivering predictive fatigue and drowsiness intelligence. Its solution not only predicts drowsiness but does this in connection with the journey to be travelled.
The Software République incubator will integrate four other start-ups:
CommuniThings is a smart-parking company active in on-street guidance and parking control. Its IoT platform consists of ground sensor or camera detection, and a rich service portfolio for end-user guidance, and parking enforcement. A pioneer of electric-vehicle spot management, CommuniThings addresses EV spot reservation, payment, and spot usage optimization.
A German start-up that provides AI-enabled Virtual sensors. This technology can replace and simulate existing hardware sensors in vehicles and enhance available vehicle data. The insights produced by virtual sensors enable predictive maintenance and new service opportunities for vehicle OEMs.
Entropy supports territories in optimizing shared mobility services. Its Artificial Intelligence model predicts the mobility needs of the population of today and tomorrow. It promotes a transport offer that is as close as possible to the needs of users in order to meet our societal and environmental 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 actors to understand the issues, test projects endlessly and make informed decisions.
