Speeding innovation for industry

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs)
CEA Tech institutes List and Leti work together to drive advances in hardware-software integration (executing complex applications on miniaturized objects). List also addresses multi-core processor architecture design and programming, as well as embedded systems reliability, operating safety, and security issues.
The institutes’ researchers have access to an advanced virtual CAD environment for prototyping that enables them to rapidly investigate and assess complex innovative solutions (algorithms, processors, architectures, and embedded software) before building and testing them. This virtual environment can be used to ensure that developments meet the necessary specifications (form factor, energy consumption, safety, etc.) before physically building them.
ALL TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS
Transdev, a company that specializes in transportation technology, has kicked off a program to characterize and evaluate LiDAR sensors. The testing campaign will lead to improvements in autonomous vehicle performance and safety.
A capacitive plastic part prototype that meets the automotive industry’s requirements was recently developed in partnership with SE2D (Symbiose Engineering Design Development).
The world’s smallest gamma camera was developed to enable Orano to map hot cells at its nuclear fuel reprocessing plant in La Hague, France.
The EU-backed FED4SAE project, coordinated by Leti, a CEA Tech institute, recently kicked off. The goal? To shorten time-to-market in Europe for solutions leveraging cyber-physical systems (CPS).
The FollowKnee project, spearheaded by Brest Hospital, was set up to develop a smart communicating knee implant that can provide information on the implant’s mechanical condition and trigger an alert in the event of an infection.
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.
