innovation for industry
Developed in the Frame of IRT Nanoelec, by CEA-Leti and Davey Bickford’s Wireless, the System Features Electronic Detonators with Bi-Directional Radio Modules
“By replacing wired communications with an innovative wireless link, this new system helps bring large-scale mining into the digital era, and increases safety, efficiency and productivity for mine operators,” said Hughes Metras, director of IRT Nanoelec, a consortium focused on R&D in the field of semiconductor devices and ICT technologies.
“This project also highlights the expertise of CEA-Leti in developing reliable and safe communication protocols for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications and underscores the value of the system approach carried out by Nanoelec with the support of CEA-Leti’s wireless division,” he said.
“The innovation demonstrated in this joint-development project is an important milestone in the collaboration between CEA-Leti and Davey Bickford Enaex,” said Nicolas Besnard, technology and system director of Davey Bickford. “Our company is committed to bringing the latest mine-blasting technologies to our customers around the world and this new electronic wireless-detonation system is another strong addition to our portfolio of solutions and services.”
