Speeding innovation for industry
News | Cross-functional disciplines
As the number of IoT devices increases, so does the number of spent batteries that have to be dealt with. Making battery lifespans longer is one of the responses to this major environmental and societal challenge. The CEA Tech institutes are developing technologies and contributing to research and development projects to do just that.
IoT sensor manufacturers no longer have to choose between environmental performance and profitability thanks to a technology known as organic printed electronics. A label with an integrated impact detector for the tracking of fragile packages and other items was recently printed on a paper substrate. The self-powered sensor is sensitive enough to detect even the tiniest impacts.
Communication network management and configuration tools developed by CEA-List, a CEA Tech institute, recently enabled autonomous vehicle platooning for the EU Autopilot project, but the potential applications for these tools are much wider.
The Divora automated voice-dictation report-generation tool is built on a multilingual language analyzer developed by CEA-List, a CEA Tech institute. The tool saves time and enhances the quality of the information recorded.
Theoretically, in-memory computing should make it possible to reduce circuit power consumption. Researchers recently verified this hypothesis in the lab, using tools they developed for the programming of innovative computing architectures.
For the first time ever, researchers have investigated different combinations of degradation mechanisms at work during the operation of PEMFCs (proton exchange membrane fuel cells) to gain new insights that could help extend lifespans.
To perform a task, neural networks must first learn. To reduce the cost of the learning phase, CEA-List developed a semi-supervised learning method that meets companies’ cost and efficiency requirements.
CEA-List recently developed an image and word recognition solution that is both powerful and energy efficient. This advance marks a step toward integrating artificial intelligence into IoT devices.
A partnership between CEA-Leti and Siemens EDA has produced a new process design kit (PDK) that will expand the range of tools designers now have available to them.
“Hardware is back” is the theme of the upcoming Leti Innovation Days with STMicroelectronics and Intel Corporation on June 22, 2021. The need to focus on innovations in hardware is more pressing than ever given the exponential increase in the energy consumption of systems expected in the coming years.
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.
