Internet of Things
The Internet of Things (IoT) will play a crucial role in smart grids by providing the means to monitor information on demand from the grid, energy bills, and consumption habits and peaks—all essential to balancing supply and demand predictably and in real time.
Data is gathered by sensors positioned on transportation networks, the grid, and at consumers’ premises via smart meters. The information is analyzed at macro level and useful information on grid status is extracted. CEA Tech research addresses multiple issues, from developing sensors to data processing and storage systems with the overall objective of providing the necessary tools to optimize electricity production and consumption.
For a wide range of devices to interact securely, the underlying hardware, software, and network protocols must be relatively homogeneous. CEA Tech institute List recently helped to develop an IoT systems design and supervision environment that leverages model-driven engineering.
ArcelorMittal turned to neural networks to improve real-time defect detection on the company’s cold mills. The N2-D2 platform responded to the company’s needs by automating neuromorphic circuit configuration and programming.

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.
