A new generation of sensors
The city of San Francisco is keeping a close eye on air pollution with a little help from a startup from France and its real-time air-quality monitoring solution.
SAN FRANCISCO – Feb. 19, 2020 – In scientists’ quest for ambient-energy sources that can power sensor nodes in remote environments or difficult-to-reach settings where batteries are impractical, CEA-Leti takes a wide view. It is investigating harvesting systems ranging from micrometer-and-millimeter scale to centimeter scale or larger.
A cohort of around 10,000 patients on blood thinners will soon have access to an out-of-hospital care pathway for their regular monitoring needs. Avalun is helping create the new pathway with its connected miniaturized lab.
After a successful fundraising round in late 2018, Morphosense has reached a new milestone, earning ATEX Z1 and Z21 certifications for its NEURON system. ATEX certifies conformity with EU regulations for equipment used in potentially explosive atmospheres containing gases and dusts.
The EU MOTION project is investigating solutions to improve the quality of life of children with neuromotor disorders. A bionic rehabilitation technology will be developed, tested, and implemented under this EU-funded initiative.
Researchers from Leti successfully integrated a high-performance chemical sensor on silicon.
The system’s quantum cascade lasers, photoacoustic cell, and photonic circuit take up less than 1 cm3; the conventional system originally took up around a liter.
CEA-Leti announces a prototype development of highly miniaturized, portable optical sensors for chemical detection of gas.
CEA-Leti today announced it has prototyped a next-generation optical chemical sensor using mid-infrared silicon photonics that can be integrated in smartphones and other portable devices.
A method based on a model of human memory has made it possible for neural networks to learn incrementally. This advance will open the door to new possibilities in the field of autonomous systems.
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.
