Speeding innovation for industry
Manufacturing and retail
The factory of the future (FoF) will be digital, functional, flexible, and profitable, making it a key factor in business performance.
People are at the center of this new breed of factory, starting by making the end customer an integral part of the production cycle. Factory staff will also play a key role, delivering their unique know-how with the assistance of flexible technologies that will make their work both safer and more efficient.
CEA Tech offers a number of solutions for the factory of the future that leverage digital technologies, connectivity, automation, data processing, Big Data, and IoT, driving the new industrial revolution that is now solidly underway.
Explainable AI—when an artificial intelligence produces an explanation of a decision along with the decision itself—is a requirement for certain applications. CEA-List, a CEA Tech institute, recently tackled this major issue in trusted AI by developing a new machine learning module that can classify images and annotate objects. The module has been integrated into the ExpressIF® AI platform.
In research conducted for a nuclear-industry equipment manufacturer, CEA-List, a CEA Tech institute, developed a new ionizing radiation measurement device. Built on the most advanced technology around, the device was designed to meet the requirements of use in nuclear power plants.
CEA-List, a CEA Tech institute, is playing an active role in building the SHM (structural health monitoring) industry. The institute now offers development and testing support for SHM technologies at a new platform called SACHEMS.
Guided-wave propagation simulation methods are particularly well-suited to the remote monitoring of difficult-to-access pipe elbow joints. This type of simulation will ultimately be integrated into CIVA, the non-destructive testing (NDT) software suite developed by List, a CEA Tech institute.
Resistive memory with revolutionary properties is made possible by a phenomenon known as ovonic threshold switching, or OTS. Researchers at Leti, a CEA Tech institute, recently shed new light on the topic.
How to collaborate with the CEA
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.
