A micro-hydro turbine designed to be integrated into water distribution networks was developed at Leti, a CEA Tech institute. The turbine harvests energy from the flow of water to power sensors used to monitor the network.
Industrial robots were developed to replace human operators on repetitive or dangerous tasks. Cobots—or collaborative robots—are different. Human operators continue to use their unique know-how, while the robot works with them to make their work easier.
EU Horizon 2020 project REDFINCH is tackling the next generation of miniaturized portable optical sensors to detect gases and proteins in liquid. The sensors under development will initially target the petrochemical and dairy industries.
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 power transformer with satisfactory thermal performance was produced using powder injection molding (PIM) and a printed-circuit-type industrial assembly. This advance will pave the way to smaller power supply components suitable for a variety of mobile devices.
CardioRenal recently partnered with Leti, a CEA Tech institute, to develop a remote monitoring system to keep an eye on heart failure patients in their homes. CardioRenal plans to release the system on the market in 2020.
Researchers at List, a CEA Tech institute, won first prize in the RAW competition for its smart positioning and routing software for reconfigurable architectures.
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.
Microbolometers, which are infrared detectors that operate at ambient temperature, were first developed for military and space applications. Today, the devices are making their way into driverless cars, where they are helping improve safety.
Tomorrow’s land transportation will be clean, smart, and shared. CEA Tech has been driving advances in the vehicle of the future through targeted research programs for 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.
