Manual non-destructive testing (NDT) is widely used in industry, and relies heavily on procedures and on the operator’s skill level. Real-time monitoring and augmented reality tools were recently developed to assist operators with their NDT tasks.
Solar photovoltaic cells made using perovskite material are naturally resistant to electronic radiation, making them a potentially-attractive alternative to the multi-junction cells used in space applications.
A passive non-destructive testing (NDT) method was developed for the inspection of pipes. The sound of the flows inside of the pipes is processed by a purpose-developed tomography algorithm that reconstructs the pipes’ thickness profile.
The NeoLED LED lighting system can be plugged directly into existing home electrical outlets with no need for an adapter. The patented system is compact and cost-effective to manufacture. It was showcased at the Vivatech trade show in May.
Terradona* sells a connected deposit-inspired solution for recycling drop-off containers that is gradually gaining traction. When equipped with the company’s smart panel, containers can actually encourage users to sort better.
SamurAI is the first-ever demonstrator system to bring together two previously-incompatible worlds: artificial intelligence and low-power communicating devices.
The world’s first solid-electrolyte lithium-ion microbatteries have been developed to meet the needs of specific healthcare applications.
Researchers investigated whether or not additive manufacturing affects a material’s hydrogen resistance. They designed an experiment to test the theory on parts made from Inconel, a material used for certain parts in the Ariane 6 launcher’s engines.
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.
