ADAVEC is led by AViSTO with Epicnpoc, Université Côte d’Azur and Renault Software Labs


AViSTO is a french IT company with about 200 engineers. It works on software solution for clients in every sector. It is member of ADVANS Group.

EPICNPOC is a startup founded by engineers from automotive software and engineering worlds. It has skills in experience design and embedded software developement.

Université Côte d’Azur is a cluster of superior education establishments. It gathers the main actors in education and research on the Côte d’Azur

Renault Software Labs is the R&D part of Renault Group. Bases in Sophia Antipolis, RSL works on software embedded architecture for the vehicle of tomorrow.


Autonomous vehicles are mixing with classic vehicles and will for a few years more. During this time, insfrastructure is evolving to be more connected.


The level of autonomy of vehicles is rising to reach levels 3 and 4 ( SAE levels), entailing different levels of involvment for the driver. The role of the driver will evolve during a trip depending on the level of autonomy of the vehicle at a given time.


The set up of this new working environment is taking years : we need to develop the technology, create the necessary infrastructure, adapt laws, etc… We are entering a long transition phase to the Autonomous and Connected vehicle.



ADAVEC project aims to create a solution to meet the challenges of this transition phase :


• Assure working safety of every vehicle during the transition


• Participate in the development of the highly Autonomous & Connected vehicle,


• Contribute to the European objective of making roads safer by 2030.


The objective of ADAVEC project is to develop a new product for autonomous and connected vehicle.



The main goal is to create a prototype enabling an autonomous vehicle to :


  • Adapt automatically its autonomy level depending on the driver behaviour (level of attention…) and the outside world (traffic, weather…)


  • Ensure a safe transfer between the different automation levels


  • Ensure that the driver has a clear understanding of the automation level and its responsabilities in every case



The solution will be a system embedded in a vehicle able to communicate with its working environment and the cloud.


The prototype will evolve during the project and simulation will be used in every phase for validation
