Moving Towards Embedded Circuits and Applications Resistant to Radiation


With the current technological boom in smart homes, where communication protocols are multiplying at both hardware and software levels, the teams at LSI Carnot can offer you their internationally recognised expertise together with a range of software solutions that ensure software interoperability within a mixed and dynamic range of communicating objects.

Embedded-systems designed for the decision making and real-time control sectors


The teams at LSI are currently working on the modelling and representation of knowledge and data. As part of their work, the teams have developed an object-oriented system on an FPGA chip for the representation and management of data and knowledge (SGBD-BC). Named  OSIRIS on Chip, this system is a tool that is capable of reproducing the cognitive mechanisms of an expert in well under a microsecond and in a specific field.

Software tools for assistance in decision-making and data analysis


Kowok has extensive experience of the problems involved in data processing, extraction of relevant information and possesses proprietary know-how to help with decision-making processes. This range of skills and know-how has enabled the development of an innovative methodological architecture based on unique and efficient analytical tools perfectly suited to a wide range of applications.

Testing Platform for Home Automation


The Domus platform enables the testing of compatibility, usefulness and usability of innovaitve products and services in the field of home automation. These criteria allow the validation and evaluation of new products and new solutions for users, whether they are end users, electricians, builders, maintenance and management staff, or other stakeholders involved in the field of home automation.

Methods for analysis of user interactivity and evaluation of product-user compatibility today are held more and more in high esteem by designers of innovative products. We have lost count of the number of products that owe their success to their intuitive and user-friendly design, and conversely those that owe their failure to uniquely “geek-friendly” ergonomics.

From the very first stages of design flow for an embedded system, testing stages ensure system performance and therefore save precious time in preparation for a market launch.

Partners with many stakeholders in the field of embedded systems, the LSI Carnot Institute is developing tools for computer assisted design and hardware validation for digital or mixed systems (real-time criticality, consumption, safety/security, etc.) and software (network protocols, control /command, etc.).

The Carnot Institute’s research into the fields of health and well-being is led by multidisciplinary teams – biologists, engineers and clinicians. All of whom aim to improve the medical service in question, as well as the comfort of patients in the hospital and at home, to provide support in the home and autonomy for the weak or elderly.

Embedded systems are autonomous electronic and computing devices that are dedicated to a very precise task. They are essential to known critical applications, such as space, transport, or defence, and their use has since been made more accessible to all sectors that require electronics (multimedia, telecoms, household appliances, healthcare technology, home automation, etc.)

The primary aim of automation is to develop and improve tools for analysis, diagnostics, and the control of dynamic systems.

The current rapid development of transport, matter, energy, and information networks tends to  produce heterogeneous interconnected, and therefore more and more complex, systems. Moreover, these systems are now very often embedded, thanks mainly to the increase in capacity for information processing and energy management. Finally, these systems must be subject to security and safety restrictions.
