Speeding innovation for industry
Manufacturing and retail
The factory of the future (FoF) will be digital, functional, flexible, and profitable, making it a key factor in business performance.
People are at the center of this new breed of factory, starting by making the end customer an integral part of the production cycle. Factory staff will also play a key role, delivering their unique know-how with the assistance of flexible technologies that will make their work both safer and more efficient.
CEA Tech offers a number of solutions for the factory of the future that leverage digital technologies, connectivity, automation, data processing, Big Data, and IoT, driving the new industrial revolution that is now solidly underway.
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.
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.
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.
How to collaborate with the CEA
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.
