The company Jacques Vaucanson, inspired by the 18th century brilliant inventor, is a startup specialized in research and development in robotic systems. The firm has been created in 2016 by the entrepreneur Emeuric Gleizes.

Concerned by the mobility challenges in our societies, the startup Jacques Vaucanson created in 2017 a specialized subsidiary in transport engineering in order to develop the Spacetrain project. The first objective would be to launch a first test prototype by the end of 2020.
