Paris, March 9, 2022 – On March 8, Atos, Dassault Systèmes, Orange, Groupe Renault, STMicroelectronics and Thales launched the Software République incubator, an open innovation ecosystem for sustainable, secure and smart mobility. The launch, which took place at Village by CA in Paris, brought together representatives of the founding members of Software République, as well as the incubator’s first group of startups.

This incubator has a dual purpose: accelerating the projects of the selected start-ups and promoting the open innovation of the six members around three themes: energy, new mobility services and connected vehicles. Incubated for a period of 6 to 18 months, startups are supposed to set up a project with at least two members of the Software République. In return, the members of the Software République will provide start-ups with their resources as well as a tailor-made support program.

Wattpark, Geoflex and Vianova, winners of the first Mobility 4.0 Challenge, are joined by two other startups, Angoka and Parcoor, chosen by the incubator’s selection committee.

The tailor-made program is divided into five areas:

  • Access to 15,000 specialists: the six members of Software République bring technical expertise, specialized resources, testing capabilities and data assets, according to projects and needs;
  • Whoaprick of choice: members provide start-up hosting based on technical sites or target markets in ten locations (in eight countries);
  • On-request mentoring: advice on market and competition analysis, finance, business plans, human resources, pitches and presentations, UX/UI (user experience/user interface), according to needs and in partnership with Village by CA;
  • Iindependent legal counsel: support from a partner law firm on legal and tax issues;
  • Pprivileged access to Software Republic ecosystem.

the startups and their projects are:

Angoka protects communications for smart cities and mobility. Its hardware solutions protect the integrity of critical machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and data provenance, creating reliable connections, regardless of the network.

Geoflex is a service operator improving GPS / GNSS applications to obtain safe and precise positioning, up to four centimeters, on land, at sea and in the air. Geoflex provides universal hyper-geolocation for trains, cars, ships, drones and smartphones, as well as last-mile delivery in smart cities.

Parcoor develops innovative embedded threat detection solutions that are deployed directly on devices. The solutions are based on a novel approach combining real-time monitored system baseline data and state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms that are lightweight, fast and explainable. This ensures integrated cybersecurity and real-time autonomous detection of potential threats.

Vianova is developing a road safety algorithm that will benefit both cities and drivers to identify and be informed in real time of dangerous incidents on the roads or high accident risks in certain areas.

Wattpark is the “Airbnb© of chargers. It allows owners of charging stations to share and rent them. It helps drivers locate a charging station, connect to it and pay easily, making the experience of driving an electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle stress-free.
