Speeding innovation for industry

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs)
CEA Tech institutes List and Leti work together to drive advances in hardware-software integration (executing complex applications on miniaturized objects). List also addresses multi-core processor architecture design and programming, as well as embedded systems reliability, operating safety, and security issues.
The institutes’ researchers have access to an advanced virtual CAD environment for prototyping that enables them to rapidly investigate and assess complex innovative solutions (algorithms, processors, architectures, and embedded software) before building and testing them. This virtual environment can be used to ensure that developments meet the necessary specifications (form factor, energy consumption, safety, etc.) before physically building them.

When speed, robustness, and low power are non-negotiable, event-based image sensors possess some intrinsic qualities that clearly position them ahead of other kinds of devices. However, they do have one major flaw, which is that when the entire scene moves, a huge number of events is generated. An advance recently made at CEA-List solves this problem.
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.
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.
Moovlab, a spinoff of CEA-Leti, a CEA Tech institute, helps gyms improve customer loyalty with fun and interactive virtual circuit training tailored to each user’s individual goals.
CEA-Leti, a CEA Tech institute, is gradually shifting over to more sustainable practices.
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.
