Sym2B took part to the inauguration of MIAI Institute (Multidisciplinary Institute in Artificial Intelligence). Artificial Intelligence is indeed at the heart of Sym2B concerns, serving its driver training simulators.
On the one hand, autonomous traffic behavior modelling, for vehicles, pedestrians as well as for passengers, is based on a Multi-agent System, longstanding research topic in Distributed Artificial Intelligence.
On the other hand, in collaboration with INRIA, in the framework of a maturation boosted by the SATT Linksium, Sym2B has started the MAT (Monitoring Attention of Trainee) project, aiming at assessing the simulator driver on cognitive aspects, as for example the right perception and understanding of risky situations. This project will use Artificial Intelligence techniques and is carried out by the INRIA PERVASIVE team, headed by James Crowley, co-holder of the Collaborative Intelligent Systems chair of MIAI Institute.
A bus and coach simulator for the Keolis Institute has been installed in Bordeaux. This simulator combines a full-scale driving stand with transportability, allowing a quick install in various training centers. This simulator stands out by the simulation of passengers and by the capacity given to the trainers to design their own training scenarios, which widely increases pedagogical possibilities.
A first tanker truck simulator designed by Sym2B is in operation at SEA (Service des Essences des Armées) premises in Chalon-sur-Saône. This simulator is both compact and equipped with a 6 degrees of freedom motion system, necessary to give realistic cues when driving off-road. Trials and measures have been previously been performed at the military camp of La Courtine, in order to parameterize and to validate vehicles behavior in simulation. The simulator will be enhanced with other innovative features, as for example the ability to drive in sand.
The French Army service, named "Service des Essences de l'Armée" (SEA), has chosen Sym2B for the supply of tanker trucks driving simulators.
This project is a partnership leading to innovative compact simulators on 6 degrees-of-freedom motion systems.
These simulators will help to improve the driving of the new CaRAPACE truck and of other tanker trucks of the SEA, in environments typical from their missions in France and in foreign countries (off-road, sand, convoys).
The Keolis Institute has chosen Sym2B for the renewal of its bus and coach driving simulators.
The simulators will put the drivers in hazardous situations, but without risk neither for themselves nor the other road users.
Fuel efficient driving and comfort-oriented driving will also be trained.
These simulators, easy to move, will be made available for Keolis French networks in 2018.
Sym2B, in collaboration with Corys, has renewed the visual system of VAG Nuremberg bus driving simulator. Short throw videoprojectors have been replaced by large 4K monitors, with integrated mirror views. The ultra-high image definition allows a forward-looking driving and provides the best possible visual comfort.
In order to accelerate its international growth, Sym2B became member of GREX, the international trade centre of the CCI (Chamber of Commerce and Industry) of Grenoble.
The French department Isère has decided to help Sym2B to accelerate its growth, through the "Aide au Développement Expérimental" programme. Rendez-vous in 2016 to discover innovative features added to our bus and tramway simulation platforms thanks to this project!
As part of the Entrepreneurship Oscars contest, organized by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Grenoble region, Sym2B has been shortlisted in the category «Talents of the Economy», with 6 other companies among 50 candidates. Congratulations to the winner, the Séréale company. Rendez-vous in 2016 for a new participation, hopefully with the award!

The application of Sym2B for Gate 1/ SATT-GIFT support has been accepted during the Detection Comity of the 3rd July 2014.
In a couple of weeks, Sym2B will benefit from the support of Gate1 and from the SATT-GIFT (“Société d’Accélération du Transfert de Technologie” - Grenoble-Alpes Innovation Fast Track), organization emanating from the French “Programme Investissements d’Avenir”.
Sym2B will be able to accelerate the research of innovative solutions in training simulation, by combining our know-how with the know-how of universities and laboratories of the Grenoble region.
