Transportation and mobility
The naval and maritime industries are faced with fierce competition. To stay at the forefront of these industries, naval and maritime companies are under pressure to get innovative new solutions to market. And they must innovate across the value chain, from ship design through to commissioning.
CEA Tech offers tools that can improve energy management and usage, enhance passenger safety, and tighten ship security, as well as sensors and antennas suited to use in constrained environments. All of these technologies are also suitable for the marine renewable energy sector.
Transdev, a company that specializes in transportation technology, has kicked off a program to characterize and evaluate LiDAR sensors. The testing campaign will lead to improvements in autonomous vehicle performance and safety.
Poudr’Innov 2.0, a technology platform operated by Liten, a CEA Tech institute, recently acquired an LBM (laser-beam melting) additive manufacturing machine from Prodways, the leading provider of industrial 3D printing solutions.
A curved sensor that limits the number of lenses required in optical equipment was recently developed. The new sensor reduces the volume of camera modules by half, creating opportunities for the manufacturers of cameras, smartphones, and other optical systems.
The MUSES numerical simulation platform is used primarily to study the behavior of fuel cells and lithium-ion batteries at different scales to provide deeper insights into how they work.
A new software application capable of simulating how battery pack components’ electrical characteristics will evolve over several years has been developed by Liten, a CEA Tech institute. The software will be useful in accurately predicting battery pack performance over time.
