Dassault Systèmes acquires Argosim for AI development

Dassault Systèmes acquires Argosim for AI development

Dassault Systèmes takes over Argosim. The startup develops technology for artificial intelligence and thus contributes to strengthening the model-based development of embedded systems. The acquisition strengthens Dassault’s 3DEXPERIENCE platform and the industry-specific solution Smart, Safe and Connected. In the press release, the French company does not let go of anything about how much it pays for Argosim.

Various companies in sectors such as transport and the environment, space and defence, as well as high-tech, rely on Smart, Safe and Connected. This allows companies to develop complex autonomously functioning systems. These include smart cars, smart homes and smart cities. Argosim’s software, called Stimulus, helps to ensure consistent and complete specifications.

Systems engineering

In systems engineering, incomplete or inconsistent system requirements lead to numerous possible problems. Stimulus makes it possible to detect conflicting requirements and specifications that cause ambiguities early in the design process. This allows developers to solve and tackle problems before the functional design phase starts.

It also makes it possible for system architects to set up a set of high quality requirements. These requirements form the basis for a well-validated and securely functioning embedded system. Thanks to Stimulus, they can use a stochastic approach to develop a so-called cyber physical system that is immediately ready for use.

Achieving ambitions

Fabien Gaucher, CEO of Argosim, states that his company is looking for a clear vision. This should help them to reach the next stage of development of our technology. The acquisition by Dassault Systèmes makes it possible to realise ambitions and fits in with the ambitions of his company, says Gaucher.

Philippe Laufer, CEO for Catia at Dassault Systèmes, also says that the acquisition of Argosim significantly strengthens our range of software and tools for modelling and simulating embedded system architectures. According to Laufer, this is also necessary because legislation and regulations are becoming stricter and pose a challenge for many of our customers.
