R&D projects

Autonomous Transport

CTI project
SystemX launches the CTI (Cybersecurity for Intelligent Transport) project. The project's goals are to:

  • Undertake industrial research in the three fields of application – automobile, rail and aeronautics, so as to transpose the most innovative and relevant good practices and IT solutions into the world of cyber-physical systems in which cybersecurity has a direct impact on operating safety.
  • Federate and share skills on the basis of a research and experimental platform in cybersecurity, dedicated to intelligent transport systems.
ELA project
The ELA (Automotive Electronics and Software) project ended. Launched in July 2013, this project aimed to provide operational solutions allowing one to respond to the new technological and economic challenges in the automotive industry, notably with regard to network-connected vehicles and driving assistance systems. Discover the project's highlights and results by browsing its interactive timeline.

Internet of Trust

EIC project
On June 9th, CAP’TRONIC organized a seminar on “Cybersecurity – IoT and embedded system”. Philippe Wolf, EIC project manager, presented the CHESS, Cybersecurity Hardening Environment for Systems of Systems, platform.


Smart Territories

MIC project
The “MIC@SystemX 2016” event held on June 7th. A demo-tour enabled the MIC project’s team to share their results with industrial and academic partners. 

MSM project
SystemX launches the MSM (Modeling Mobility Solutions) project. The purpose of this new project is to provide solutions that improve traffic flow for users in urban areas.

SCE project

  • SCE just established a new partnership with soluNergie; which supports local authorities in their energy transition. The company will work on a use case in cities about the energy contracts optimization.
  • On July 6th, the project organized the “SCE@SystemX 2016” event. On the agenda: a reminder of the project’s roadmap and objectives and a demo-tour.

Systems Engineering

SIM project
The SIM (Engineering and Multi-Disciplinary Simulation) project ended. Launched in June 2013, this project aimed to imagine the tools of the “product architect” and the methods of “model-based” multidisciplinary collaboration for the engineering of future products (hybrid cars, more electric aircrafts) that respond to environmental, energy efficiency, comfort and passenger safety issues.
