CES - #lasvegas, Jan 4th 2017 - Four Groupe #renault strategic technology partners – OSVehicle, ARM, Pilot and Sensoria - will present exciting open-innovation and open-source projects at CES this week, illustrating new ways of thinking about mobility as technology meets transportation. With an open-approach to innovation, #renault and its partners are exploring the changing face of the #automotive industry through early hardware and software modification, the addition of new, customizable features and aftermarket opportunities.
Also at CES will be Renault-Nissan Alliance Chairman and CEO Carlos Ghosn who will showcase in his Nissan keynote solutions, many developed as part of the Alliance converged engineering function and shared technology.
“Renault has been making cars for more than 100 years and our industry is changing rapidly. Being able to work in all new ways, incorporating new technology with new scenarios in mind, ensures we’re constantly exploring new areas of transportation, connected cars, zero emissions and an easier life for our customers,” said Pierrick Cornet, VP Engineering, Groupe #renault, “CES is one of the world’s great stages for what’s next in consumer technology and we’re excited to be here with our partners and through the Renault-Nissan Alliance.”
|THE WORLD’S FIRST OPEN-SOURCE MASS MARKET VEHICLE|
Based on Twizy, #renault has developed POM, a compact and lightweight electric vehicle with bodywork parts removed and an open-source #automotive platform. Available to start-ups, independent laboratories, private customers and researchers, it allows third parties to copy and modify existing software to create a totally customizable electric vehicle.
In partnering with OSVehicle to develop an open-source platform readily accessible to the community, OSVehicle also provides on-demand design and engineering services for complete personalization. Bringing together a rich ecosystem of entrepreneurs, developers, designers, and engineers, OSVehicle makes it easier to build, share, distribute and modify the hardware designs of electric vehicles.
“We are very excited to welcome a great #auto OEM like #renault in our open ecosystem”, said Tin Hang & Yuki Liu, founders of OSVehicle. “We are sure that our community will benefit and provide value to the #automotive industry, contributing with new mobility solutions and solving specific needs with a wider range of connected car and self driving technologies. Sharing common hardware platforms to everyone is a new co-creative and horizontal approach that can disrupt this industry lowering significantly costs and time-to-market.”
Providing processor design technology powering more than 80 percent of mobile computing devices, Renault’s collaboration with ARM will open up the Twizy software and hardware architecture to allow new features, including interoperability with ARM®-based connected devices. The ARM ecosystem is scaling the ARM architecture to address a diverse range of #automotive technology use cases in support of ADAS, IVI, autonomous driving, advanced cockpits and connected car.
“Connected vehicles will enable new business models that deliver a broad range of choices and experiences for end users,” said Richard York, vice president of embedded marketing, ARM. “The #automotive industry will increasingly focus on the specific functionality that owners want, such as comfort level and entertainment. By providing this platform, #renault is paving the way for innovation in these areas.”
