Six start-ups join the Software République incubator

Six new start-ups will integrate the incubator of Republic of Softwarean open innovation ecosystem for smart, safe and sustainable mobility, founded by Atos, Dassault Systèmes, Orange, Renault Group, STMicroelectronics and Thales, totaling ten start-ups within its program.

Launched in March 2022, this bespoke incubation program has a dual objective: to accelerate joint projects with selected start-ups but also to promote open innovation by the six founding companies.

Two of these startups are CORE for Technologya deeptech company that measures and estimates drowsy driving, and base brand, a software publisher that offers development tools for the automotive industry. Both are joining Software République’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) project, which aims to improve the experience of drivers and passengers by developing new functionality using the customer’s smartphone or tablet.

As part of the BYOD project, under the impetus of its first Dacia customer, Software République is working with CORE for Tech to develop a feature that will enrich Dacia’s Media Control application. This new feature suggests when and where to take trip breaks to help drivers plan their trip safely. Based on a unique algorithm in the market combined with camera technology, it takes into account the driver’s physiological conditions, the journey path and the travel conditions (weather, traffic, type of road).

Software Republic plans to build on this functionality and others within the BYOD project to provide innovative use cases for the automotive industry. These use cases will be available to all car manufacturers and fleet companies.

The two startups incubated as part of the BYOD project are:

base brand

Basemark offers tools for developing software-defined vehicles. The start-up is the developer of Rocksolid Core – the first end-to-end automotive operating system and platform that covers all vehicle functions for software-defined vehicles. Applications built with Rocksolid Core can run on many different underlying hardware.

CORE for Technology

CORE for Tech improves driver safety by providing predictive information about fatigue and drowsiness. His solution not only predicts drowsiness, but does so in relation to the road ahead.

The Software République incubator will integrate four other start-ups:


CommuniThings is a smart parking company that provides street guidance and parking control. Its IoT platform consists of a ground sensor or detection camera and a portfolio of services for end-user guidance and parking control. A pioneer in space management for electric vehicles, CommuniThings handles booking, payment and optimizing the use of spaces for electric vehicles.


A German start-up providing AI-based virtual sensors. This technology can replace and simulate existing hardware sensors in vehicles and improve available vehicle data. The information produced by virtual sensors enables predictive maintenance and new service opportunities for automotive OEMs.


Entropy supports territories in optimizing shared mobility services. Its Artificial Intelligence model predicts the mobility needs of today’s and tomorrow’s population. It promotes a transport offer as close as possible to the needs of users to respond to our societal and environmental challenges.


Neovya accelerates the transition to a smoother, safer and more sustainable mobility system by providing specialized mapping, data analysis and simulation software solutions. Its main solution is Neovya Hubsim, a collaborative web platform that allows territorial actors to understand problems, test projects infinitely and make informed decisions.
