A finalist among 10 startups, Geoflex will showcase crowd-mapping and lane level crowdsourced traffic information using its high accuracy positioning solution
Massy, Essonne Oct 22, 2021 (Issuewire.com) – Geoflex, a provider of high accuracy positioning services, is announcing that it has been selected among the ten finalists of the Mobility 4.0 Challenge organized by the Software Republique, a consortium made of six major European companies: Atos, Dassault Systemes, Orange, Renault Group, STMicroelectronics, and Thales.
In the next 6 weeks, Geoflex will use its GNSS augmentation service to demonstrate, using standard GNSS hardware available in current vehicles, crowd-mapping, and lane-level crowdsourced traffic information. These highly accurate maps could then be used for car-centric applications (lane level navigation and guidance, ADAS) as well as in smart city and last-mile delivery operations.
Thanks to the Software Republique, Geoflex will have access to the data necessary for its project and will be supported by experts from the six companies to prototype this idea. On December 6th, 2021, the jury will review the 10 proposed projects and choose 3 winners.
The jury of the Mobility 4.0 Challenge is composed of eminent representatives of the six companies:
– Sophie Proust, EVP Group Chief Technology Officer, Atos Group
– Laurence Montanari, VP Transportation & Mobility Industry, Dassault Systemes
– Frederic Vacher, Head of Innovation 3DEXPERIENCE Lab, Dassault Systemes
– Jean-Marc Lafond, IoT portfolio Director, Orange Innovation
– Luc Julia, Scientific Director, Renault Group
– Gilles Le Borgne, EVP Engineering, Renault Group
– Frederique Le Greves, Executive Vice President, France Public Affairs, STMicroelectronics & President and CEO, STMicroelectronics France
– Stephane Royer, Group Chief Data Officer, Thales
