AKKA Technologies, Dassault Systemes Partner to Create Self-Driving Car

Engineering teams will use the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE platform to create the autonomous vehicle.

AKKA Technologies and Dassault Systemes have entered a long-term partnership focused on promoting innovation within the self-driving connected vehicle market. With this partnership, a press release states, the companies will offer high-end engineering services and solutions within the global automotive industry.

Both companies will work to create a solution for cloud-enabled vehicle services and a driverless vehicle. AKKA Technologies is currently in the process of developing the Link & Go, a dual-mode, connected, urban, electric car.

The features of the car include enhanced vehicle location capabilities, directional suspension, automatic parking in specified spaces, a graphic interface of the instrument cluster and a central human-machine interface.

To help design the car, AKKA is relying on Dassault’s 3DEXPERIENCE platform to develop, design, simulate and validate on a single cloud platform.

“The challenges of creating mobility experiences of the future are fundamentally transforming the entire industry,” said Bernard Charlès, president and CEO, Dassault Systemes. “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.”

Details on the Link & Go are available in the video below:
