Groupe Renault to further autonomous vehicle development by forming new joint venture with Oktal

On July 4th, 2017, Groupe Renault announced the signature for the acquisition of a 35 percent stake in a new joint venture, Autonomous Vehicle Simulation (AVS), formed together with Oktal, a subsidiary of Sogeclair, a French aerospace and simulation company based in Toulouse, France. This step will allow Renault and the Renault-Nissan Alliance to continue delivering a menu of advanced technologies by furthering autonomous vehicle development testing in a virtual environment.
The newly formed AVS partnership will also benefit the Renault-Nissan Alliance, which has committed to launch more than 10 vehicles with autonomous capabilities by 2020.
The Alliance has already engaged in the virtual testing of Autonomous vehicles using SCANeRTM simulation software, originally invented by Renault, that was co-developed with Oktal.
