Observation, signaling, simulation, training, routing and maintenance

Sioux develops, builds and integrates automated high-end hardware and software systems for OEMs in traffic, transportation & infrastructure. We operate as an extension of their research and production departments.

Domains 

  • Observation of vehicles, traffic flows and vehicle usage
  • Signaling for safety, control, flow and maintenance
  • Simulation of complex training and verification systems
  • OptimiSation of (multimodal) mobility
  • Efficiency in logistics and transportation

The ever-increasing traffic on road, rail and water goes hand in hand with a growing need for capacity, safety and sustainability. This translates into new requirements for transport, transport and infrastructure. In order to meet the changing demand, high tech companies develop increasingly intelligent automated systems. Sioux helps them to perform better, faster and cheaper.

Sioux's added value is in our multidisciplinary service in the fields of mechanics, electronics, mathematics and embedded systems. During development, we combine diverse knowledge, for example on communication technology, imaging, connectivity between systems, data mining and generating useful information using complex algorithmics. Moreover, as an R&D and manufacturing company, we can easily bridge the gap between development, feasibility, user friendliness and maintenance.

Cases

Automated guided vehicles

Sioux supports Oceaneering AGV Systems in developing Automated Guided Vehicles for in-house transportation, for example, warehouses, hospitals and entertainment industries.

Innovative fleet management systems

Fleetlogic collaborates with Sioux on the realization of innovative fleet management and after market solutions. Sioux focuses on roadmap and technology development, Fleetlogic on sales and marketing. Sioux has taken over the initial R & D department of Fleetlogic. The cooperation resulted in market leadership in the Netherlands.

Smart algorithms for pantographs monitoring and maintenance

By finding out in time whether pantographs on trains require maintenance, costs can be saved and safety improved. Sioux developed complex algorithms for fast image recognition and analysis, and integrated into an existing camera system that monitors driving trains.

Security systems for observation and access control

Sioux developed, built and integrated various security and mobility systems for the TKH Group, for example, for parking management, observation and access control of parking locations.

Training simulation for the crew of pipeline ships

The Royal IHC builds specialist ships for the mining industry. Sioux supported the company in developing a training simulator for the crew of pipeline ships.

ACEA

ACEA (European Automobile Manufacturers Association) asked Sioux to investigate whether the average directions of their simulation tool for determining the CO2 emissions of lorries correspond to reality. When this was not the case, Sioux mathematicians optimised these driving cycles for international, regional and local freight traffic in Europe.
