Institut Polytechnique showcases its incubators and start-ups at Viva Technology

The Viva Technology (Vivatech) fair attracts more deeptech start-ups. On the occasion of 6ika edition of the show, held from June 15 to 18, the Institut Polytechnique (combining Ecole Polytechnique, Ensta, Ensae, as well as Télécom Paris and Télécom Sud Paris) showed 21 start-ups from incubators its. Located in the Paris region, there are three of them: the Drahi-X Novation Center, the Télécom Paris incubator and the IMT Starter.

“The The Vivatech show is a great opportunity to pay attention to these areas of change “, we explained in the position of the Polytechnic Institute” Some of our incubators have been in operation for over 20 years, but now there is a new dynamic with the emergence of deeptech “. In fact, the Télécom Paris incubator and the IMT Starter were created in 1999, following the Innovation and Research law, which favors researcher-entrepreneur status.

The Polytechnique incubator – named after Patrick Drahi, a former school student and main donor to the establishment – was launched in 2015. All three offer 18 months of support, which can be extended to 2 years, of upstream projects. phase. The programs offer preparation for seed stages, to conduct initial fundraising with public investors (e.g. Bpifrance) or private investors (deeptech seed funds).

The projects came from different Institut Polytechnique schools and from external initiatives. All incubated start-ups are present at the Institute stand. Focus on the three start-ups seen during Vivatech.

Amphitrite, space imagery in green maritime traffic

Created by Alexandre Stegner, Lecturer at l’X and Evangelos Mochos, doctoral student. Amphitrite technology is based on the fusion and processing of data from satellite images. Thanks to a daily update, it makes it possible to identify the state of the ocean in real time. The algorithms generate from this data an accurate mapping of sea currents.

It is an alternative to the current simulation tools currently in use, providing greater reliability “, explains Alexandre Stegner. From this map, the software can also calculate ideal sea routes to take full advantage of favorable currents and thus reduce fuel consumption by almost 15%. Amphitrite, which joined at the polytechnique incubator in December 2021, plans to raise funds in the fall.

BIB, algorithms for extending battery life

Incubated since March 2022 at the Télécom Paris incubator, BIB is developing a lithium-ion battery monitoring platform for the electric mobility fleet. ” Our algorithm provides a clear view of the remaining potential of the batteryexplanation by Pierre-Amans Lapeyre, who is responsible for this project. It will find a second wind in other applications, even if it seems to be at the end of its life. “.

The program also makes it possible to predict breakdowns and optimize loads. The start-up is working on two proofs of concept with partners in the field of “free floating”.

Scorp-Io, an “no code” industry management platform

Why make it complicated when you can make it simple? Start-up SCorp-Io wants to make child game management industrial. Its SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) system is based on an ergonomic and “no code” interface to make it easier to learn. The solution consists of a data acquisition box that will be placed on the equipment to be monitored and software that will process the data in the cloud. The system is fully configured to accurately reproduce the production line to be tracked.

It is a digital twin form of production toolexplanation by Jean-Romain Bardet CEO of the start-up. The user can, with a few clicks, configure alarms to monitor the operation of his equipment. We will also soon include a tool for detecting unusual behavior based on machine learning algorithms “. The SCorp-Io solution is currently in beta testing with approximately ten manufacturers. The start-up expects to achieve a finalized version in September 2022.
