The first goal of the 2016-2020 road map is therefore to meet the challenges faced by the industrialists in the design, modelling, simulation and testing phases of future innovations that include increasing amounts of digital technologies, through four programmes:
- Agile Industry: Developing collaborative engineering methods, processes and software tools for complex systems, in the context of the extended enterprise by harnessing the potential of digital technologies.
- Autonomous Transport: Developing new secured and safe architectures for autonomous vehicles and transport systems, integrating new uses, critical onboard systems, infrastructure evolution and their interactions.
- Smart Territories: Developing tools for assisting decision-making for the optimisation and operational planning of territorial development using data gathering and analysis.
- Internet of Trust: Developing the algorithms, protocols and architectures on which tomorrow’s digital infrastructures will depend – the foundations of the digital transformation.
