History

AVSimulation is a joint-venture that was originally founded by Oktal – part of Sogeclair Group and now OktalSydac – and Renault in 2017 combining 30 years’ experience in engineering, simulation, automotive domain knowledge and financial stability.

The Sogeclair group brought the vehicle dynamics model from its special vehicle entity SERA Engineering as well as mechanical engineering while Renault transferred its stake in SCANeR™ the open, modular and scalable driving simulation and validation platform as well as innovative projects on autonomous driving as well as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems massive validation.

In 2021, AVSimulation welcomed Dassault Systèmes, the world leader in CAD and PLM software as an additional shareholder. A strategic partner to accelerate its global footprint, integrate SCANeR™ in the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform to allow customers to collaborate, simulate and validate throughout the development lifecycle.
