European engineering and technology consultancy group AKKA Technologies has partnered with 3DEXPERIENCE company Dassault Systèmes to promote innovation in the self-driving connected vehicle market.
Together, AKKA and Dassault Systèmes will offer high-end engineering services and solutions to respond to the global automotive industry’s demand for cloud-enabled vehicle services and consumer experience, such as smart driverless vehicles.
AKKA’s engineers will use Dassault Systèmes’ cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE platform to develop the next generation of its self-driving concept car, which is known as the Link&Go. The company will use Dassault Systèmes applications to create, design, simulate and validate the Link&GO cars on a single, collaborative cloud platform. It will also leverage the platform to accelerate the development of the next Link&Go concept, which aims to focus on how mobility consumers can benefit from customised and customisable services.
“This partnership is a real technological development that will help create new services to suit the connected world and promote our engineers’ excellence and creativity,” said Maurice Ricci, CEO of the AKKA Technologies Group
Bringing the new vehicle development platform and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform together will facilitate project management throughout the design phase, providing engineers with a unified social collaboration space that encourages the adoption of new technologies and new processes and sharing institutional know-how.
“The challenges of creating mobility experiences of the future are fundamentally transforming the entire industry,” said Bernard Charlès, president and CEO of Dassault Systèmes. “What does a car experience look like when you tie it to the cloud, infotainment, mapping and GPS, and so many more services? This partnership will answer those questions, support driverless vehicle development, and address infrastructure integration, such as connectivity to the smart city of the future.”
