Innovation at the heart of our business

At AGUILA, we constantly maintain an RDI activity (research, development & innovation) to bring the most innovative and relevant technological solutions to the service of our customers.

We work with research laboratories, including CNAM-Cedric (Paris) and ESTIA (Bidart, Aquitaine).

AGUILA is:

  • More than one patent filing per year
  • National and international R & D projects (especially European)

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 implement 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 focuses on Behavior Characterization and Tracking of Sheep and Goats using Embedded Technologies. Two axes are investigated, namely the assistance to herd management and the valorisation of pastoral areas.

Co-built with technology partners and business partners, it is about designing a tool to facilitate and optimize the work of breeders.

Different themes are treated, especially for the location of animals, the creation of alerts in case of abnormal behavior or when they leave their authorized territory.

NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR PASTORAL ZONES

Whether in seaside areas or in mountain areas, pastoral farming of small ruminants play an essential agricultural and ecological role. For these ecosystems, pastoral areas strongly contribute to the herd's food autonomy. Livestock production systems in these areas produce food with a high degree of typicality.

The breeding also helps maintaining the environmental quality of these landscapes in keeping them accessible, for fire and avalanche prevention and the sustainability of biodiversity.

However, these farms are subject to ever-increasing "work" limitations, increased predation, and even more frequent climatic hazards.
