The 3 selected start-ups, Affluences, Aquilae and Axper, are experts in the measurement of affluence, intelligent video surveillance, and the counting and tracking of people. They will integrate the MSM (Modeling of Mobility Solutions) project piloted by IRT SystemX.
Selected among 15 start-ups by a jury made up of industrial partners of the MSM (Modeling of Mobility Solutions) project as well as representatives of the Cap Digital andt Systematic Paris-Region, Cap Digital and Systematic Paris-Region competitiveness clusters, Affluences, Aquilae and Axper distinguished themselves by their specificities with regard to their innovative nature, the potential of their solution and their ability to quickly produce a proof of concept.
These 3 start-ups join the MSM project that was launched in 2016 by SystemX for a period of 4 years. This project aims to provide solutions that improve the understanding of local mobility and help to smoothen the movement of users in urban areas. The 3 main thrusts of this project are the assistance to regulation by proposing a multimodal supervision tool, the resizing of the transport supply by means of simulation and the numerical evaluation of new mobility services. The project is based on field trials conducted with users and transport operators to validate developments in real conditions. It brings together industrial players such as Alstom, Assystem, Bouygues Telecom, Cosmo Tech, OpenDataSoft, RATP and Renault and includes among its academic partners, CentraleSupélec, École Polytechnique, Ifsttar, Institut Mines Télécom and Laboratoire Ville Mobilité Transport. (LVMT).
Affluences, Aquilae and Axper will work for a period of 6 months minimum, with 3 partners involved in the project: Alstom, Assystem and RATP. Their technologies of automatic counting of individuals – via 3D cameras – will be tested on the platforms of the bus line 360 (La Défense – Garches), at the level of 3 stations with different profiles. START@SystemX offers the opportunity to demonstrate their expertise and the relevance of their technological bricks to promote a dynamic management of the transport supply so that it adapts to the prediction of travel demand and real-time operating constraints (automatic detection of incidents, overload, etc.).
The three selected start-ups will also benefit from a grant from the Investments for the Future Programme, amounting to € 60,000 as part of a POC&GO challenge (an initiative promoted by Cap Digital).
