KNOW-HOW TO MEET YOUR NEEDS :
Part of CEA Tech’s R&D focuses on the driverless car—an advance that will help make transportation more widely available, convenient, and energy efficient. CEA Tech’s institutes are working on the software, sensors, and other communicating objects that will equip tomorrow’s vehicles and transportation infrastructures
One of CEA Tech’s major research areas is the electric vehicle, with the goal of zero emissions in urban areas. Range is one of the main hurdles to the widespread adoption of electric vehicles, and CEA Tech is developing improved batteries and battery management systems (BMS) to extend vehicle range.
Communication network management and configuration tools developed by CEA-List, a CEA Tech institute, recently enabled autonomous vehicle platooning for the EU Autopilot project, but the potential applications for these tools are much wider.
Researchers from CEA-List, a CEA Tech institute, have trialed a new approach to the formal validation of neural networks applied to image recognition. Their goal is to improve the safety of features such as pedestrian detection.
In research conducted for the EU INTEGRAL project, Liten, a CEA Tech institute, helped scale up second-generation thermoelectric materials and validation-test their use on functional thermoelectric generator demonstrators.
Nitrogen oxides, produced mainly when diesel fuel is burned, are harmful pollutants. Liten, a CEA Tech institute, recently modified automotive cabin air filters to effectively filter out nitrogen oxides at ambient temperature, improving air quality for drivers and passengers.
CEA-Leti, a CEA Tech institute, unveiled a state-of-the-art demonstrator chip for high-performance computing applications at ISSCC 2020. The low-cost, energy-efficient processor is built on an innovative multi-core system that is both modular and expandable
