All kind of transportations in Toulouse
Toulouse through its expertise on other transportation means benefits from skilled people to work on airworthiness, UTM from ATM, geo-positioning accommodation of payload, auto-pilot, embedded systems, security protocols, etc...
Experimentation zone in Toulouse
The former airport military airport Francazal has been tranformed into an experimentation zone, where all kind of new transportation is tested: HyperloopTT, Easymiles, and drones.
The Robotics Place cluster gathers 78 members: companies, laboratories and universities, to develop solutions for upcoming challenges.
Launched in 2012, the Robotics Place cluster is the 1st in France contributing to the development of the sector in France and abroad.
This cluster belongs to the FFCR - Fédération Française des Clusters de la Robotique.
