Some projects

— Mobility Of The Future

AKKA played a key role as one of Europe’s first innovators in “on-demand autonomous mobility”, with the design of a shared and autonomous on-demand mobility service with Transdev. AKKA designed, developed and integrated the autonomous system Transdev uses in its vehicles today. The system includes all the necessary automation components: identification, tracking and mapping of environments, which operate under real-time constraints thanks to the intelligent technologies developed by AKKA Research.

— Smart Cockpit

AKKA unveiled a “cockpit of the future” project for connected and autonomous vehicles at the 2018 Las Vegas CES. Capitalizing on our expertise in connected technologies, software, integration and car design, AKKA ensured the integration of all on-board components, designed the mechanical structure, and contributed to the development of the “Smart Life on Board” concept.

— Demo Car

AKKA is involved in the development of an electric, autonomous and connected demo car for a significant OEM. This level-4 autonomous vehicle concept, has two integrated electrical powertrains in the back wheels. AKKA designed the 3D digital model, the electric and electronic architecture, and conducted body-in-white research as well as the vehicle’s development and integration.

— Energy

AKKA handles the design and development of a web app for visualizing the waste recovery performance of all of EDF’s sites and those of its contractors.

— Digital Factory

AKKA supports a key player in the Medical Devices sector in its project to transform a manual production line into a fully automated one: which it calls “The Factory of the Future. This project calls upon our expertise in complex projects management, innovation, robotization, automation and digital.

— Train Automation

AKKA accompanies a major railway manufacturer in the automation of its trains. We are involved in a remote train pilot project, a critical step toward autonomous mobility. This technological innovation aims at allowing for the operation of a driverless train through the use of an outboard remote console. The vision of the external environment, identical to what a driver would see in the cabin, is possible thanks to on-board cameras and real-time image feedback on remote screens.

— Internet Of Things in Aerospace

AKKA’s Internet Of Things Project is driving the customer vision and operationalization of Industry 4.0. It aims to improve business intelligence and performance through the use of smart and connected objects to increase aircraft profitability. It is already providing cost savings by improving the accuracy, control and efficiency of business processes through better visibility and coordination.
