Five leaders together for a new innovation ecosystem
République software is the name of the new ecosystem, born with the aim of innovating smart mobility. Five leading companies in their sector launched this exciting new project a few days ago. Atos, Dassault Systèmes, Groupe Renault, STMicroelectronics And Thales they came together to put together complementary skills to focus on an increasingly advanced and sustainable mobility.
République software, the ecosystem to change mobility
The Boston Consulting Groupone of the most important companies in the field of the economy, has estimated a growth of 60% for the mobility sector by 2035. Another testimony of how this world is evolving and important, so much so that it is estimated that it will reach the incredible value of 11,000 billion euros. An exceptional development driven by the many innovations that have arrived in recent years.
From electric vehicles to the ever-increasing importance of artificial intelligence and new ways of conceiving travel, it is clear how this world is changing. For this reason it is important to position yourself at your best right away. In the other countries they are many the players who are striving to be among the leaders who will lead the field in the future.
Precisely for this reason it was born République software, with the aim of stimulating a reunion of strength not only in France, but in all of Europe. A collaboration between key companies in cybersecurity, connectivity, AI and of course the automobile, which will open the doors to a world more integrated. A new sustainable ecosystem that allows you to make the most of new technologies to establish yourself on the market.
Where to focus the collaboration?
I’m three the main areas in which the integrations for Software République will be developed. It will aim to cooperate to create secure systems to connect vehicle and the surrounding environment (physical and digital), a optimize the flow of data for territories and companies with advanced simulation and data management tools and a simpler and more sustainable way to recharge the batteries of electric vehicles.
In the presentation of the project, for example, the concept of Plug and Charge. Thanks to systems of this type, the charging points can automatically recognize electric vehicles and start the process without the need for user intervention. And again, it aims to favor an optimization of local mobility flows. A data study, accessible to as many players as possible to offer consumers the best ways to move, with the cities more ready to manage exceptional events, the most proactive operators in terms of services provided and possibly even a better study of urban plants .
Software République also has the creation of a investment fund and further initiatives in favor of start-ups. A way therefore to further promote innovative ideas, always in the spirit of collaboration behind the project. One is in development data challenge precisely to launch the project, to encourage the development of ideas for the mobility of the future, which will necessarily be electric, connected and autonomous.
The voices of Software République
Below you can find the statements of the founding members of this new project.
Elie Girard, CEO of Atos
“Atos is proud to be one of the founding members of Software République. As a company that creates technologies and integrates complex solutions, we will make available to this unique ecosystem our digital expertise in reducing the carbon footprint and our innovative technologies in key areas such as artificial intelligence, digital security, cloud, IoT or ad computing. high performance (HPC). By combining the strengths of five of the world’s leading automotive and technology players, this initiative promises to accelerate the decarbonisation of mobility ”.
Bernard Charlès, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer Dassault Systèmes
Software République is therefore a multisectoral and multidisciplinary ecosystem that aims to accelerate innovation and grow the drivers of tomorrow. To achieve this, it will build on the collaborative virtual environment provided by Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform and experiences based on digital twin technology. It will also make use of the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab start-up accelerator “.
Luca de Meo, CEO of Groupe Renault
“In the new value chain of mobility, on-board intelligence systems represent the new driving factor, the focal point where all research activities and investments are now concentrated. Faced with this technological challenge, we have chosen to operate under the banner of cooperation and openness. There will be no center of gravity, the value of each will be amplified by the other members. The combined know-how in multiple fields – information security, microelectronics, energy and data management – will allow us to develop advanced, unique solutions aimed at low-emission, shared, responsible and Made in Europe mobility “.
Jean-Marc Chery, President & CEO, STMicroelectronics
“STMicroelectronics has teamed up with Software République to ensure that its innovative semiconductor solutions and products contribute to the electrification and digitization of vehicles and mobility services. Our know-how is an enabling factor in the transformation underway towards more efficient solutions, in line with the expectations of stakeholders regarding the environmental impact. The partnership at the heart of this project will also help strengthen links across the value chain, a key aspect during this transformative phase of the industrial sector. “
Patrice Caine, President and CEO of Thales
“Software République brings a momentum that is both collaborative and disruptive, essential to the mobility ecosystem. Based on its proven experience in the field of digital security in very complex sectors – transport, banking, defense and aerospace – Thales will share its expertise in artificial intelligence, cyber security and connectivity to strengthen vehicle and data protection systems. and those who work in the field of mobility “.
