Dassault Systèmes (DS) has acquired Geensoft, a provider of embedded systems development solutions, for €5.5 Million. The V6 portfolio is expanded by adding the capacity to model and generate the entire vehicle control software system, according to the company, allowing a validation loop by connecting the physical equipment with the digital mock up.
“I am delighted to have Geensoft’s team of experts join Dassault Systèmes,” says Dominique Florack, senior executive vice president, Products, Research and Development, Dassault Systèmes. “Together we will make the virtual product closer to the real world.”
DS’s V6 PLM platform delivers a collaborative environment that can bring together multiple systems engineering disciplines, working with hundreds of disconnected domain-specific tools.
“We are a long-time user of the Geensoft tools, including the AUTOSAR Builder, ControlBuild and Reqtify embedded solutions,” says Patrick Sudan, director of Automation, PSA Peugeot Citroën. “The integration of Geensoft’s innovative capabilities around modeling with DS’ systems engineering solutions and the ability to leverage models in embedded electronics and automation for development, integration and validation is very good news for corporate customers, such as PSA. By providing integration in the PLM design environment, we believe this acquisition has the potential to significantly improve the overall efficiency of our vehicle design process in the future.”
