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
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.
SamurAI is the first-ever demonstrator system to bring together two previously-incompatible worlds: artificial intelligence and low-power communicating devices.
Arcure, founded in 2009, develops 3D vision systems for industrial and construction vehicles with the support of List, a CEA Tech institute. The company recently completed its initial public offering. We spoke to List artificial intelligence, language, and vision expert Patrick Sayd, who develops the image-analysis-based pedestrian-detection technology Arcure uses in its products.
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.
