Founded three years ago by Cécile Villette, Rihab Jerbi, and Bérengère Lebental, ALTAROAD aims to improve the sustainability and safety of road infrastructures.
To achieve this, we have developed, in partnership with a research team at the École Polytechnique, the University of Gustave Eiffel (ex-IFSTTAR), and the CNRS, a machine learning platform and a network of sensors capable of collecting a whole range of data that is analysed in real time by algorithms developed in-house. This data is accurate enough to identify:
- the type of vehicle that passes over the TopTrack system without stopping
- its wheel and axle configuration
- its weight
- its speed
These elements are coupled with multiple weather indicators and available in our platform in real time.

ALTAROAD already markets the TopTrack solution, which makes it easy to track and digitise heavy goods vehicle flows by combining different sources of data acquired by cameras and its mobile weighing system.
Our platform generates all the necessary documents for transport of materials and waste in a dematerialised format. Lately, the actors of the construction industry, and in particular project managers, have become more and more interested in:
- allowing a great transparency in the traceability of flows between different actors
- having an easy display of metrics
- creating and sending alerts, for example, in case of under-loading
- having a better control of their CO2 impact
Overall, our solution enables a better monitoring of waste and excavated soil as soon as they are produced on site.
The success of our solution can be attested to, as it won the notorious competition organised by the European Innovation Council (EIC) in July 2020.
In addition to industrial sites, ALTAROAD is developing solutions for monitoring road infrastructures, with deployment envisaged in the short term to prevent overloaded trucks from crossing bridges and roads.
By combining different sources of data, including cameras and a mobile and practical weighing system on construction sites, ALTAROAD will market its products in Europe and then internationally.
