How it started…

The founders of ANTSWAY, Marc Grojean and Ammar Oulamara, met as part of an R&D contract on the interoperability of carpooling and public transport. At the time, Ammar, a professor of computer science at the University of Lorraine, France, was leading the InfiniDrive project at the LORIA. The aim of this R&D project, initiated by La Poste and ERDF (Electricity of France), was to determine the optimum criteria for integrating electric vehicles into the fleets of companies carrying out service routes.

With the help of SATT Grand Est and then BPI (French Public Investment Bank), the two co-founders set up ANTSWAY in 2015. In addition to integrating electric vehicles, the team is developing powerful algorithms to help professionals in all sectors of activity optimise their daily routes. The first release of the online AntsRoute software was launched at the end of 2018.

Did you know about this…

Ants are collectively capable of finding the shortest route between a food source and their nest.

As soon as an ant discovers a food source via any route, it returns to the nest, leaving a pheromone trail. The other ants take different routes to reach the same food source, but reinforcing the trail makes the shortest route more attractive. The other paths then lose their pheromone trail, and the ants end up taking only the shortest path.

Researchers were inspired by the behaviour of these ants to develop “Ant Colony Optimization Algorithms”… and our team drew inspiration from this to develop the optimisation algorithms for our software. By the way, AntsRoute is made up of the words “ants” and “route”.
