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.
The first-ever proof-of-concept prototypes that enable the creation of printed subsystems were recently completed using a second-generation transistor technology. This advance will pave the way toward the development of demonstrators with optimized electronic integration for specific applications.
SamurAI is the first-ever demonstrator system to bring together two previously-incompatible worlds: artificial intelligence and low-power communicating devices.
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.
