Announced at the presentation of the Renaulution strategic plan in January, the Renault Software République is already a reality! It was launched on April 9th in the presence of Luca de Meo, CEO of the Renault Group and his counterparts from Atos, Dassault, ST Microelectronics and Thales, the first founding partners, at the brand new Odyssée building at the Renault Technocentre.
At the heart of this project, unique in the sector, are leading companies and innovative start-ups united to create mobility solutions and systems that will shape the (near) future of mobility.
Mobility has been a common good for decades, but never has it evolved as quickly and radically as in recent years. These profound changes are prompting automotive and technology companies to innovate in the way they operate, and to join forces to better meet the challenges they face in terms of connectivity, decarbonization, multimodality and business models.
Launched by Renault, with Atos, Dassault Systèmes, STMicroelectronics and Thales as its first founding partners, the "Software République" is the result of this observation. It will function as a new ecosystem for innovation in intelligent mobility.
By pooling their complementary expertise in artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, embedded systems and Big Data, the partners plan to develop new software and solutions that will enable mobility service operators to offer citizens, businesses and local authorities services that facilitate accessibility, improve the user experience and enhance energy management. These offers, integrating vehicle systems, service platforms and network operating tools, will be increasingly accessible, simple, fluid, multimodal, responsible and secure.
The "Software République" ecosystem is being created in anticipation of a strong increase in the global mobility market between now and 2035: +60% and up to €11,000 billion in revenues according to the Boston Consulting Group. It will enable the capture of value, particularly around electric vehicles, new components, new after-sales services and other value-added services, and the creation of associated jobs.
The Software République will be able to welcome new members in addition to the five founding leaders - large companies as well as innovative start-ups within its future incubator - and thus develop a collaborative environment for development and experimentation.
Thanks to this open innovation system, the Software République will offer development opportunities for industry, infrastructure, telecommunications, as well as aeronautics and defense. It is also a tool for sovereignty in a global market in which the United States and China have already taken positions. Today, the founding members of the Software République are expressing the urgency for France and Europe to collectively build a sustainable ecosystem that aims to ensure their sovereignty in this field.
An exciting challenge.
IF WE design Leonardo' machine in 3D, can we better understand the incredible patrimony he inherited?
