We have developed new forms of R&D partnerships with our clients, which go beyond consulting or turnkey-based projects.
We are working on the technical resolution of their sector-specific issues. To do this, we use innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence or machine learning, and we lead projects in a collaborative R&D mode.
For example, in the field of AI, we seek to optimize energy consumption according to the treatment. Currently, masses of data are sent to data centers for processing, and the results are returned to the devices. We aim to achieve optimal performance of neural networks by implementing them at the hardware level. To do this, we use the latest FPGA matrices provided by ARM (ELSYS is an « ARM Approved Design Partner »).
We regularly participate in collaborative R & D projects at national or European levels.
For example, the NexGenTV project in the field of Social TV. Using Wildmoka technologies, it aims to develop tools and solutions to make interactive and shareable video streams on social networks. In addition to AViSTO and Wildmoka, the other members of the consortium are Envivio, Eurecom and CNRS-Irisa.
Another example, the EconHome project, which focused on reducing the power consumption of home network equipment (residential gateways, set-top boxes, powerline communication modems and Wi-Fi extenders).
Last example, at the European level (FP Framework Program of the European Union), we participated in the OMEGA project, which aimed to implement a multi-technology home network at 1 Gbps, with no new wires.
Our internal or collaborative innovation activities are carried out in conjunction with competitiveness clusters, such as System@tic, Images & Réseaux, SCS, SAFE or MINATEC.
This way, we contribute to the exchange of ideas and points of views that often lead to promising new projects.
We also work in partnership with universities (e.g. INSA-IETR), public research organizations (e.g. CEA) and private research organizations (e.g. IRT Saint Exupery).
From this pooling of our respective skills and know-how also emerge exciting projects!
