The Cyclope.ai adventure

November 2017

Launch of Cyclope.ai

The VINCI Group decided to invest in an ad-hoc AI team, whose mission is to invent products for the future of roads: they began their work trying to make the most of the image data coming from the network.

June 2018

Tollsense at-scale

Cyclope.ai deployed the Tollsense solution on the whole VINCI Autoroutes tolling network: as of today, over 165 million transactions have been processed by our algorithms.

May 2019

Tunnelwatch at Toulon

The tunnel of Toulon decided to adopt Cyclope.ai’s new generation Automatic Incident Detection (AID) software, to replace their obsolete solution, that recorded too many false alarms.

July 2019

Dedicated lane evaluation

The DIR Méditerranée appointed Cyclope.ai, alongside Ingérop and the Cerema, to conduct the evaluation of dedicated public transport lanes in the Aix-Marseille urban area.
