.lumen – the research startup that builds glasses which empower the blind to live a better life, achieved yet another great success this year by joining the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab by Dassault Systèmes.
Dassault Systèmes is a global leader in sustainable innovation that develops software for 3D virtual design, simulation manufacturing and collaboration.
Their 3DEXPERIENCE Lab is an exclusive open innovation laboratory and accelerator program. It was created to nurture disruptive innovations by helping startups boost their business with world-class product development solutions, training and co-marketing opportunities.
For a growing startup such as .lumen, the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab accelerator program represents a great opportunity.
Highlights from the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab accelerator program include:
Access to Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform
Technical skills and mentoring
Content, technology, applications and expertise that have transformed the design, engineering and manufacturing of most products society relies on today
A worldwide ecosystem supporting product launches and international presence
What does this mean for .lumen?
.lumen has been using Dassault Systèmes’ SOLIDWORKS as its main mechanical design and simulation tool. Still, as the company grows and the .lumen glasses are getting closer to production, adopting the 3DEXPERIENCE cloud platform becomes paramount.
“To design one of the most advanced wearables in the world, aimed at helping millions, requires tools that are second to none. We are proud to work with Dassault Systèmes towards a better future."
— Cornel Amariei, .lumen CEO & Co-Founder
.lumen builds glasses that help the blind live a better life. It's a system created for the 40 million blind individuals who don't have access to an advanced mobility solution. The glasses replicate the main features a guide dog brings, all in a scalable product. Currently in the final Research & Development stage, the product is getting ready for production.
As one of the rising innovation leaders for assistive technologies, the team strives to see the .lumen glasses empower as many blind individuals as possible across the globe.
Through the program with Dassault Systèmes, .lumen is receiving the support to achieve this mission.
".lumen’s social mission and business model reflect the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab’s ambition to contribute the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This was a key factor in the decision to bring them into our accelerator program. They are a welcome addition to the diverse projects underway that are united in the aim to have a positive impact on people and society.”
— Frédéric Vacher, 3DEXPERIENCE Lab Director, Dassault Systèmes
