Smart digital systems
The number of connected objects in use is growing exponentially. And CEA Tech institute List is conducting R&D to give connected objects the capacity to interact naturally with users and the environment. List researchers are developing reliable, secure communications and are designing intuitive interfaces (haptic solutions, augmented reality, and enhanced ergonomics) to help deliver new services to users. List is also investigating language analysis, using data processing and image interpretation to identify context and facilitate interactions with users.
This research leverages state-of-the art technologies, positioning List to bring its partners a substantial competitive advantage on the connected objects market.
ALL TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS
ExpressIF™, the artificial reasoning platform developed by CEA-List, a CEA Tech institute, has been augmented with a spatial data processing module to assist in decision making. The technology is currently being used to manage wildfires, but it also offers potential in other emergency management situations.
The LIMA language analysis engine now has deep learning modules that can analyze 60 languages with state-of-the-art performance.
A system for detecting transitory faults on medium-voltage electrical distribution networks was developed to prevent power outages before they occur. It can detect and locate very early indicators of wear or damage to cables.
A haptic interface was developed by researchers at List, a CEA Tech institute, to make operating farm machinery easier. An initial prototype centralizes the control of two major functions: the gearbox and draft.
Solving combinatorial problems requires special artificial intelligence software. This type of software was recently added to the ExpressIF platform, which can now solve even more complex problems.
How to collaborate with CEA Tech teams ?
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
