The purpose of the Paris-Saclay Autonomous Lab project is to devise and test different smart, autonomous, electric and shared public and private mobility services tosupplement the existing transportation systems in the Paris-Saclay area.

A comprehensive autonomous transportation system comprising autonomous vehicles, a supervision system, connected infrastructure and customer applications will be set up and experiments will be conducted to determine the requirements for scaling up an autonomous mobility service.

Groupe Renault, the Transdev Group, IRT SystemX, VEDECOM and the University of Paris-Saclay initiated the Paris-Saclay Autonomous Lab project. It was launched under the acronym EVAPS with support from the French government’s Investments for the Future program (PIA) entrusted to ADEME ; the Établissement Public d’Aménagement Paris-Saclay ; the Paris-Saclay urban community; the Essonne Department; and Ile-de-France Mobilités.

IRT SystemX brings its expertise to the project by supplying specifications and recommendations covering architecture, operational safety analysis and system cyber-security for the comprehensive autonomous transportation system. IRT SystemX uses MBSE (model-based systems engineering) and scenario simulation to help master the system’s architecture and life cycle. MBSE modeling is also used to handle safety and ensure compliance with the Level 4 safety requirements of the SAE standard. In terms of cybersecurity, SystemX helps protect the system by analyzing potential risks and provides a PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) solution to protect the infrastructure and the V2X data it carries.
