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.
A new hybrid polymer electrolyte technology with the capacity to enhance battery safety was developed for Solvay. The company has begun presenting the new technology to battery manufacturers.
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.
For the first time ever, a 256-pixel active matrix was printed at the PICTIC platform at Liten, a CEA Tech institute. This is the first-ever system-level demonstrator and it confirms the potential of printed electronics for industrial-scale manufacturing to equip tomorrow’s high-tech devices.
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.
Liten, a CEA Tech institute, used the MUSES platform’s multi-physics models to generate simulations of the distribution of liquid water on the surface of a PEMFC-type fuel cell.
