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.
Research conducted under two EU projects has given rise to a new distributed energy management platform capable of coordinating the energy consumption of households at the scale of an entire neighborhood.
A capacitive plastic part prototype that meets the automotive industry’s requirements was recently developed in partnership with SE2D (Symbiose Engineering Design Development).
The EU Mobitrust project helped to develop more secure environments for the execution of critical applications on new mobile platforms.
A testing platform based on the sensiNact software environment was developed under the FESTIVAL project. The platform provides access to data collected from a variety of experimental sources.
The EU-backed FED4SAE project, coordinated by Leti, a CEA Tech institute, recently kicked off. The goal? To shorten time-to-market in Europe for solutions leveraging cyber-physical systems (CPS).
