Dassault Systèmes and Cognata announce strategic partnership to accelerate the launch of safer autonomous vehicles

Jan 8, 2019   Technology

Dassault Systèmes and Cognata, Ltd. have announced that they are partnering to embed Cognata's Autonomous Vehicle Simulation Suite into Dassault Systèmes' 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

The partnership will provide a first-of-its-kind solution for autonomous vehicle makers to define, test and experience autonomous driving throughout the development cycle within the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. This will make a fully integrated autonomous vehicle development process resulting in faster, more accurate and safer autonomous vehicles on the road.

Dassault Systèmes' 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides Industry Solution Experiences such as Smart, Safe and Connected to the transportation and mobility industry that transform the way next-generation vehicles are designed, produced, delivered and operated.

Cognata's full product simulation solution leverages deep learning to enable autonomous vehicle manufacturers to run thousands of different scenarios based on various geographic locations, traffic patterns, and weather conditions.

By incorporating the Cognata simulation suite into the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and leveraging CATIA best in class systems engineering roles and applications, the two companies deliver a one-stop-shop, outstanding environment to engineers for accelerated autonomous vehicle design, engineering, simulation and program management.

"Simulation is key at all stages of cyber systems engineering. Billions of miles must be virtually run before a car can be considered safe. AI-powered experiences that combines vehicle behaviour, sensors and traffic models allow alternative designs to be tested in the concept phase to identify the optimal engineering solution," said Philippe Laufer, CATIA CEO. "Integrating Cognata's accurate and comprehensive offering into the 3DEXPERIENCE platform creates a unique solution to help our customers greatly reduce the time to market of safe autonomous vehicles."

"The partnership with Dassault Systèmes will hasten the development of autonomous vehicles, by making simulation an integral, seamless component of the engineering process," said Danny Atsmon, CEO and Founder of Cognata. "The earlier simulation is utilised, the easier it is for engineers to modify each component of the autonomous vehicle and test it through a virtual environment, to see how it works once incorporated in the vehicle and confronted with unexpected edge cases."
