Foundation of the Company
The initial objective was to accelerate the transfer of Image Processing and Artificial Intelligence tools developed through academic research, in order to propel new applications through decision support systems on-board drones or in the Cloud as SaaS.
Accelerating the integration of image processing, robotics and AI tools
We demonstrated feasibility in the first few months through industrial Proof of Concepts, highlighting the speed, reliability and precision of our integrative approaches.
Expansion of the A2D team
Obtaining multi-year contracts for infrastructure inspection, coupled with the support of BPI France, among others, enabled us to expand our team of specialists in data acquisition and processing in uncontrolled environments.
Digital innovation competition
Our MAPRAD POC wins the Port du Futur digital innovation competition, organised by CEREMA.
