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.
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, announced that it embedded its SigmaFusion algorithms into Infineon hardware approved for the automotive industry. The advance, unveiled at the ITS conference in June 2017, is a world-first that will also pave the way for opportunities in other industries.
In research conducted under the EU H2020 project EuroCPS, Leti, a CEA Tech institute, partnered with Terabee to develop a low-cost embedded location and mapping system suitable for use in enclosed spaces.
Liten, a CEA Tech institute, leveraged its broad, deep knowledge of printed electronics and plastronics to develop a completely smooth car dashboard demonstrator with no mechanical buttons. The demonstrator was unveiled at the 2017 Geneva Auto Show.
List, a CEA Tech institute, has developed the first-ever industrial-scale reflectometry-based embedded early cable defect detection demonstrator system.
Silicon electrodes are among the frontrunners in the race to replace the graphite electrodes currently used in Lithium batteries. Several imaging and spectroscopy techniques have provided a deeper understanding of the mechanisms that underpin silicon electrode degradation.
