French Innovations RFID / NFC and IoT
A new team for new projects
March 2019, if the vast majority of people already forget their New-year’s eve resolutions, well Odalid did not ! Here in Odalid, commitment is really important and we want to keep our promise of renewal in 2019.
Ten years after Vincent Thivent created his own company, Odalid keeps on growing and developing its solutions on the different market sectors of IoT, access control, presence control and ticketing. This year, the company will blow its tenth candle. The company’s owner decided to celebrate the event by recruiting a whole new team, mainly composed by interns : two students form the Technology University of Belfort - Montbéliard (UTBM), one student from the University of Burgundy (UBFC) and of course the company’s owner himself. In other words, a whole new fresh team ready to overcome the challenge of the technological market, which knows a steady growth.
ArcelorMittal, the world's leading integrated steel company manufacturing each year over 100 million tonnes of steel. This lead to an important logistics issue: the transportation of this steel.
ArcelorMittal's french site (Fos-sur-Mer) is daily visited by several different transporters for the loading & unloading of the steel plates and coils.
Highly secured, this site requires a systematic identification of its employees, and of the external visitors- including transporters.
In order to constitute the France team of the best companies of the IoT, the La Poste group gathered 13 committees in the regions to select the future winners and mobilized 80 digital partners in the territory.
The 2017-2018 vintage of the best companies working in the field of connected objects has been unveiled: the team brings together companies from all over France whose common denominator is innovation!
Among the 51 new start-ups that join the start-up support program, for this 2017-2018 season, ODALID is one of the winners for its NFC / RFID / contactless and IoT hardware and software solutions expertise.
Thank you to Bourgogne numérique who allow us to present our innovation. Our NFC reader POE fit with the ecosystem of IoT (Internet of Things).

Vincent Thivent, Odalid Present yourself :
Hello, my name is Vincent Thivent and i am the CEO of Odalid.
Could you present Odalid ?
Odalid conceive, develop and commercialize innovant RFID and NFC device. We are present in different activities sector. We do access control, for example we just equiped an industrial site (Arselor Mital), that will allow to control the Flow of loading and unloading of truck. We also work in control of presence, particularly in the industry and school (presence of student), a few of contactless Payment (with NFC) and we work in the transport and ticketing (bus, tram...).
What is your innovation ?
We talk a lot of IOT (Inter of Things), we develop a lot of hardware from NFC reader. Our innovation take place in the protocol of communication between the reader and the software part of communication. Indeed, we integrate in the reader the IP technologies and POE, that allow to our reader to communicate. With that we can interrogate him with a remote access host in a local network or an application cloud. Thank you to Vincent Thivent for your experience!
Odalid is developing its own pre-qualification test tools RCTIF (Common Repository Telébillettique Ile de France).
This test bench makes it possible to perform the analog tests :
- Magnetic field min / max ISO10373-6 / RCTIF ;
- Load modulation A / B and B ' ;
- Waveform parameter measurement ;
- Coding and bit representation ;
This test bench is composed :
- Calibration Coil ;
- PICC reference ;
- Reference PCD ;
