AVSimulation is a leading provider of end-to-end simulation solutions – from software such as SCANeR™ to ground breaking simulators – for advanced and autonomous vehicles prototyping, development, validation and AI training. SCANeR™ is a complete, open and modular platform including advanced models for Vehicle Dynamics, Driver, Sensors and Environment (Roads, Traffic, Weather) from functional to full physical modelling used by more than a hundred customers across the globe.  To further reduce time-to-market AVSimulation provides expertise and accelerators to help its customers win the race to build safer and better autonomous vehicles. Headquartered in Blagnac in France and with offices in Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA and Boulogne near Paris, AVSimulation is the ultimate partner to win the race to build safer and better autonomous vehicles

ALL4TEC is a French and independent SME that has been in existence since 1998. ALL4TEC is an editor and develops its own tools in the field of Model Driven Engineering. Our tools are dedicated to the Validation (MaTeLo), to the Safety (Safety Architect) of programmed systems and to the Cyber security (Cyber Architect). ALL4TEC has a broad vision of Model Driven Engineering and has an important feedback on the development environments dedicated to modeling, on the ergonomics of the final tools and on their openness to the “engineering world”.

ARMINES is a contract research association whose purpose, under the terms of its statutes, is research and training through research in liaison with industry.

Within REPLICA, it is thus planned to capitalize on the know-how in mobile systems for mapping and semanticizing 3D point clouds, and to work on making the whole more robust thanks to the contribution of multispectral imagery. The use of multispectral imagery for material or surface characterization, for example in the field of satellite remote sensing, is beginning to develop; but to our knowledge, this has never been tested for mobile terrestrial mapping systems. The objective of ARMINES / Mines ParisTech is to develop and maintain an internationally renowned scientific level on these themes, and to make the industry benefit from it according to its well-known partnership research mode of operation.

The REPLICA project is thus in line with the ARMINES / Mines ParisTech strategy towards mobile 3D digitization systems. In addition, it will allow the implementation of concrete and fruitful internal collaborations between Centres, corresponding to its strategic orientations of coordination within the Mathematics and Systems Department.

Terra3D is a Spin-off of ARMINES / MINES ParisTech (with participation in the capital of Transvalor SA, a subsidiary of ARMINES), created on October 1st, 2015, to commercialize research results on mobile 3D mapping systems.

The start-up Terra3D is the result of several years of research results and several projects, the most recent of which are the Terra Numerica and Terra Mobilita FUI, supported by the CAOR and CMM research centers.

RENAULT’s AD Simulation & Virtual Reality service is a center within the Vehicle Engineering Department of the Automotive Division. Located in the RENAULT Technocentre, Guyancourt, France, the AD Simulation & Virtual Reality service is a competence centre dedicated to the simulation of autonomous vehicle (AV) and ADAS, as well as digital vehicle, based on virtual mock-up and driving simulation tools. The service compares advanced digital technologies and deploys relevant technologies within RENAULT’s engineering departments. The objective is to reduce development times and costs and in particular to minimize the number of physical prototypes and the amount of actual hours spent on the test track in a vehicle project.

The PSA Group was created from the 1976 merger of Peugeot and Citroën and the 1978 acquisition of Chrysler Europe. The PSA Group brings together three strong and distinct brands, each with its own identity, range of vehicles and marketing policy.

In 2014, PSA Group employs around 185,000 people worldwide and PSA sold 2.9 million vehicles worldwide and maintained its position as the 2nd largest manufacturer of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles in Europe.

Commercially present in 150 countries, the Group makes more than a third of its production outside Western Europe.

The PSA Group confirmed its environmental leadership for the third consecutive year with nearly one million vehicles sold emitting less than 112g of CO2/km.

Based on the Paris-Saclay plateau, the SystemX Technological Research Institute (IRT) is positioned as an accelerator of digital transformation. Focused on the digital engineering of the systems of the future, its research projects cover the scientific and technological challenges of the industrial sectors of transport and mobility, energy, digital security and communications. They respond to the challenges faced by manufacturers in the design, modeling, simulation and experimentation phases of future products and services, increasingly integrating digital technologies.
The evolution of technologies and the need for their integration imply indeed to take into account the new paradigm “Digitalisation” through a “systems” or even “systems of systems” approach. The IRT roadmap 2016-2020 is structured around 4 programmes: agile industry, autonomous transport, smart territories and trusted internet. Today, SystemX is 23 projects launched, involving 75 industrial partners and 21 academic laboratories, and 260 employees, including 120 own resources.
