Our research and development projects

CO-GISTICS is a consortium of 33 local authorities, logistics and freight transport organizations, large private companies and SMEs working on the deployment of cooperative ITS services for logistics.

CO-GISTICS is the first European project entirely dedicated to the deployment of cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) focused on logistics. CO-GISTICS services are deployed in 7 European logistic hubs; Arad (Romania), Bordeaux (France), Bilbao (Spain), Frankfurt (Germany), Thessaloniki (Greece), Trieste (Italy) and Vigo (Spain).

CO-GISTICS partners work together to install and operate cooperative services on at least 315 vehicles (trucks and vans).

CO-GISTICS deploys 5 services:

  • Intelligent management of truck parking and delivery areas
  • Optimization of freight transport
  • Monitoring and estimation of the CO2 footprint
  • Priority and speed advice
  • Eco-Drive Assistance


The CLOCHETE project is interested in the characterization of the behaviour and location of sheep and goats using Embedded Technologies. Two areas are being investigated, namely aid for herding and the development of pastoral areas

Co-built with technological and business partners, it is a question of designing a tool to facilitate and optimize the work of farmers.

Different themes are dealt with, in particular for the location of animals, the generation of alerts in the event of abnormal behaviour or in the event of leaving their authorised territory.


Whether in Mediterranean or mountain areas, pastoral breeding of small ruminants plays an essential agro-ecological role. For these systems, pastoral areas contribute significantly to the food autonomy of the herds.

The livestock sectors in these areas produce food products with a high degree of typicality.

Livestock also maintains the environmental integrity of these environments by maintaining their openness, fighting fires and avalanches and preserving biodiversity.

However, these farms are subject to increasingly heavy "work" constraints, increased predation, or increasingly frequent climatic hazards.

In this context, the arrival of new technologies opens up opportunities to rethink the farming profession and give it a new appeal.
