Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs)
CEA Tech is helping drive widespread IoT (Internet of Things) deployment by addressing three major issues: how communicating objects capture and process information; overall system cost reduction; and data security.
CEA Tech institute Leti is developing sensors to pick up data and process it locally to extract relevant information and is making advances toward self-powering components by modifying integrated low-power electronics, developing enhanced low-level protocols, and systems capable of harvesting energy from the environment.
The institute is also developing smart miniaturized antennas and investigating ways to roll out reliable, secure connectivity. Finally, the institute is paving the way for tomorrow’s telecommunications networks (5G) for IoT.
ALL TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS
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.
Samba is a hardware and software solution that helps college campuses improve the delivery of services to deaf and hearing-impaired students. Developed by Grenoble-Alpes University and CEA Tech with financing from the university’s IDEX grant and IRT Nanoelec, the solution was recently improved based on feedback from field testing.
Tissot turned to CEA-Leti, a CEA Tech institute, for a precision timekeeping solution for the 2020 UCI Road World Championships. The goal was to boost the range and reliability of real-time radio transmission of cyclists’ times.
CEA-Leti, a CEA Tech institute, is gradually shifting over to more sustainable practices.
The P-link peripheral-to-peripheral high-speed data transfer system is cheap, robust, efficient, and low-power, making it the perfect candidate to replace copper or fiber optic cable in some applications.
How to collaborate with CEA Tech teams ?
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.
