In addition, LACROIX is part of the SMART WATER NETWORK project in partnership with b <> com – a technologically leading research institute for private 5G in France. This project, which is also an important concern for metropolitan areas, aims to develop the 5G platform, a secure and sovereign end-to-end solution for the improved remote control and monitoring of water networks, which is implemented in the context of the environmental sector considerable savings, be it in resource consumption or in the costs of installation and maintenance work.
Both the 5GREEN MOBILITÉ and SMART WATER NETWORK projects are significantly supported by BPI France as part of the “Investments for the Future” (PIA) program in the form of funds totaling 2.1 million euros in order to advance the Smart World. These funds accelerate the development of innovation and R&D capabilities, which are at the heart of the Group’s strategic priorities.

Finally, the innovative Smart Crosswalk solution, which was selected by the Rennes metropolitan region, is now entering the second field test phase. Developed by LACROIX’s City Activity and Innovation Laboratory, Smart Crosswalk uses a range of sensors and built-in artificial intelligence software connected to a traffic light controller to detect traffic flows – cars, buses, bicycles and pedestrians – and control the flow of traffic through them Support promotion of active mobility, for example. This experiment, which is already in full swing, makes it possible to consider even more ambitious goals for the 5GREEN MOBILITÉ project.
“We are very pleased that LACROIX is being recognized for its technology leadership within the framework of the 5GREEN MOBILITÉ and SMART WATER NETWORK projects and its Smart Crosswalk solution, which reflects the group’s ambitions to jointly shape the world of tomorrow – a world that is resilient , sustainable and. is safe.
