Dassault Systemes reveals industry solution for carmakers
The automotive industry is constantly evolving. Companies are continually in the process of developing and releasing new technologies make cars safer, more efficient and more luxurious.
One of those companies is Dassault Systemes. As Electropages recently highlighted, the 3D design and product lifecycle management (PLM) company has announced the launch of a new industry solution to for the automotive sector.
A number of factors
The new solution, called "Smart, Safe & Connected Car," features a number of different applications in a modular approach, according to the news source. The product is intended to help car developers accelerate the process of designing embedded systems.
In particular, "Smart, Safe & Connected Car" will help automakers ensure that their systems remain in compliance with ISO26262 safety standards and Automotive Open System Architecture (AUTOSAR) regulations. These standards were developed via collaboration between a number of automakers as a means of ensuring that new cars are held to a certain level when it comes to security and functionality.
As the news source noted, more than 80 percent of all vehicle innovation concerns electronics and software, and much of this is geared specifically toward developing active or passive safety improvements, performance upgrades and new entertainment options.
A modular approach
As these standards and statistics demonstrate, car development is a complex process. Dassault's new product will improve carmakers' abilities to abide by these standards while meeting consumer demand. To this end, the new solution uses a modular approach to manage the complexity of the industry, with a variety of tools incorporated into a single design platform.
Dassault Systemes has a deep history working with the automotive industry. Last year, for example, the company reached a strategic partnership agreement with Jaguar Land Rover to use its advanced 3D simulation software to improve the car company's product development.
