Internal R&D and Start-up

A key strategic focus

R&D is a key strategic focus for the ADVANS Group. ELSYS Design, the first company of the group to have been created in 2000, was awarded the “Innovative Company” label by ANVAR (now Bpifrance) in 2002; it is also part of the Bpifrance Excellence network, made up of companies “that are thirsty for freedom, which innovate and which have a desire to undertake without limits.”

Technology innovation

On a constant basis, we carry out internal projects aimed at reinforcing our know-how.

They often take the form of PoC (proof of concepts) using the latest technologies.

For example, in Sophia Antipolis, we have developed a PoC around the concept of screen mirroring in the automotive field. In a nutshell, the project consisted of replicating the screen of an Android smartphone on the touch screen of the vehicle to be able to control it.

Another example, in Grenoble, we have designed a high-end connected plug combining thermostat, light control, switch-on / switch-off functions by clapping hands and enabling to have a follow up of a room temperature and brightness over several months (the data being presented on an Android mobile application also developed internally.
