Digital Activity Development in Nice

The French leader in autonomous transport solutions, MILLA Group, is setting up in Nice with ambitious objectives.

The inauguration of its new platform in Nice Saint-Isidore marks a key step in its expansion.

This 400 sqm site will allow its new unit, dedicated to digital innovations, to ensure the development, maintenance operations, and sales related to the Operational Assistance and Passenger Information Systems (SAEIV).

MILLA Group offers a range of autonomous shuttles: Milla Car and Mini Bus for passenger transport, Milla CarFlex, a rail-road vehicle, and Milla Delivery for goods transport.

As a leader in autonomous shuttles, MILLA Group offers a turnkey solution, including a supervision and regulation platform that allows easy integration into an existing transport system and a smooth transition towards automated transport.

MILLA GROUP has already successfully conducted numerous service pilots under real conditions, thus demonstrating the operational robustness of its solutions and their suitability for the needs of territories.

€15M Fundraising in June 2023 to Industrialize Its Solutions

The company raised €15 million in June 2023. A crucial milestone for the industrialization of its autonomous shuttles, a world first announcing a revolution in shared transport.

This financial operation, carried out with the support of the SPI Fund managed by Bpifrance on behalf of the State, CELAD, a leading engineering group, and a private investor, highlights the attractiveness of MILLA Group to deep tech actors and its ambition to become a leader in sustainable transport innovation.

Strategic Strengthening through the Acquisition of CECCLI

At the last Mayors’ Fair, MILLA Group announced the acquisition of the intellectual property for CECCLI’s SAEIV solutions, based in the Nice Côte d’Azur Metropolis at Saint-Laurent du Var.

This move aimed to strengthen its presence in the smart mobility sector, smoothly integrate autonomous shuttles into daily user life, and offer new complementary mobility solutions.

The acquisition of CECCLI’s SAEIV systems covered the management of bus fleets and rail networks.

Autonomous Mobility Experimentation at Carros-Le Broc

MILLA Group (ISFM) is participating in the upcoming operation of the IMREDD as part of the Territories & Autonomous Shuttles Chair. This new phase of experimentation, scheduled in the Carros-Le Broc Industrial Zone from March 4 to 8, aims to assess the efficiency and acceptance of innovative mobility solutions, with the goal of improving traffic flow and accessibility within industrial zones.

Offering a free service to employees in the zone, these shuttles embody MILLA and ISFM’s commitment to promoting sustainable and easily accessible transport solutions, leveraging the advantages of autonomous technology to meet mobility challenges in urban and industrial environments.
