Independent driving is revolutionizing the way we travel.
This new, fast-growing sector should represent $7 trillion in 2050. Today, North America represents the largest share of the world market for autonomous vehicles. As the most dynamic country in the sector, the United States alone accounts for almost half (48%) of world investments. Among the most dynamic American states in terms of autonomous vehicles and legislation, we found Arizona, California and Michigan. World leaders in the sector such as Ford, General Motors, and Renault-Nissan Alliance are all present in the USA.
While driver assistance systems are already present on many new vehicles, the autonomous driving mode is now at the heart of research. Technologies such as laser remote sensing (also named LiDAR), digital “core line” technologies, artificial intelligence or those of cyber-security are therefore being developed to achieve this objective. It is estimated that more than 116 million connected vehicles will be on the road by 2025, while in 2035, 24% of vehicles sold should be autonomous.

Ubimobility was a unique opportunity to meet major players in America, to get an idea of the ecosystem on site (makers, equipment manufacturers, labs, incubators), and to present our technologies during the numerous top-quality meetings organized by Business France’s team.
A very intense and perfectly organized stay generating numerous contacts and opportunities.
Ubimobility provided a very precise feedback on TrustInSoft’s value proposition with a varied set of players in the automotive industry. These numerous contacts, some of which tailor-made for us, first allowed a better marketing focus. It then led to additional meetings to clarify customer needs. And finally, we were able to issue the first commercial proposals three months after the program.Fabrice Derepas
