SystemX Tour

About the IRT SystemX – Located on the plateau of Paris-Saclay, the IRT SystemX is designed to be an accelerator of the digital transformation. Focused on the digital engineering systems of the future, its research projects cover the scientific and technological challenges of the industrial sectors of transport and mobility, energy, digital security and communications. They respond to the challenges faced by industrialists in the design, modelling, simulation and testing phases of the future products and services that are increasingly integrating digital technologies.

Changes in the technologies and the need to integrate them mean that the new « Digitalisation » paradigm must be taken into account through a « systems » or even « systems of systems » approach. The IRT’s 2016-2020 road map is built around 4 programmes: systems engineering, autonomous transport, smart territories and digital infrastructure. Today, SystemX has launched 21 projects, involving 65 industrial, 14 academic partners and 250 staff, including 80 of its own resources.

Access plan :

Demonstration 1 – « Cooperate with your autonomous vehicle »

The autonomous vehicle will be able to cope with the vehicles merging onto a highway. While the traffic code gives priority to vehicles already on highway, it is the usage that decides whether the autonomous vehicle should pass or yield to merging vehicles. The human driver can help make clear certain situations in this scenario.

The demonstration presents a system that allows Driver-Vehicle Cooperation, with an intuitive system interface based on augmented reality.

Demonstration 2 – « Live the augmented reality glasses driving experience »

For our SystemX Localisation and Augmented Reality project, we are studying how augmented reality can help in making roads safer. The idea is to highlight obstacles and anything that can be a danger ahead of the vehicle, as well as the route the driver should take. For this purpose we use augmented reality glasses that enable us to add a virtual notation to a real object. This technology offers a wider field of view than a head up display device installed in a vehicle. The goal of our project is to make a prototype that will enable us to assess the worth of this technology in car driving.
