Kawantech integrates experiments for connected mobility

On April 16, 2021, the Occitanie region validated the funding of the PRRI * Autocampus. Kawantech is a member of the consortium of academic and industrial partners that has formed around this project, which aims to set up an experimental ground for intelligent mobility and electric, connected and autonomous vehicles.


AutOCampus differs from its equivalents because it takes place on the site of Paul Sabatier University, which welcomes around 36,000 people every day and thus allows experiments in an environment very similar to that of a small town. A real smart-city laboratory.

This project is a significant step in the integration of Kawantech into an ecosystem that aims to address the connected mobility market. Ultimately, the AutOCampus platform will support other projects for the development of Kawantech applications, services and products, such as the Paracoll project which has received the Aerospace Valley label and whose examination is underway by the BPI * * (AAP 5G INDUS CRITICAL).

It is in the nature of Kara technology, with its bird’s-eye view and on-board computing capabilities, that allows Kawantech to position itself on the themes of mapping and protection of vulnerable mobile users, like the Paracoll project. The detailed knowledge of the current state of a road and its traffic as well as the learning of mobility habits are information that allows to consider services that address safety, flow management or even town planning.

5G technology to develop the mobility of tomorrow in Toulouse

A few days ago, Orange inaugurated its 5G Lab in Toulouse, France. The objective of the group is to co-develop with local companies, services and innovations that will include 5G technology.


The Orange 5G Lab is above all a test and reflection area for companies that want to integrate 5G into their technology and services.

Kawantech is developing a sensor that analyses the data received by a street lamp. The first step is to make lighting intelligent, by allowing real-time regulation of public lighting according to the activity in the street. By lighting only when necessary, energy savings of over 65% can be achieved.

Today, this technology is being made available to future connected and autonomous vehicles, which need to receive additional information about their environment: a vehicle has broken down several cars ahead, a pedestrian is hidden behind the bus I am preparing to overtake, etc. In partnership with Orange, Kawantech is adapting its technology to intelligent mobility. 5G will have a major role in its development.
