CEA, the French Atomic Energy and Alternative Energy Commission, is a key player in research, development and innovation in four main areas:

Defense and security Low carbon energies (nuclear and renewables energies) Technological research for industry Fundamental research in the physical sciences and life sciences CEA Tech is the technology research unit of CEA. It develops through its three institutes – Leti, Liten, List – a broad portfolio of technologies for ICTs, energy and healthcare. The institutes of CEA Tech are conducting R&D to overcome the Transportation and mobility challenges with four major focuses: vehicle design, infrastructure, services and energy supplies. CEA tech R&D activities, in the field of land transportation, include batteries and battery management systems for electric vehicles as well as software, sensors and other communicating objects that will equip future vehicles, and in particular driverless cars and transportation infrastructure.

Participation in EU Projects and International Activities

CEA Tech is involved in several initiatives at European level:

- ETP/JTI ARTEMIS specific group EICOSE for transportation application, - ETP EPoSS specific automotive group, - ERTICO, - Hydrogen Europe and - JTI-FCH.

CEA Tech is also taking part in CleanSky2, Shift2Rail and the Innovation Communities of the EIT (EIT Digital, EIT Health, EIT Raw Materials, EIT Climate, EIT Inno-Energy, EIT Added Value Manufacturing which all include dimensions related to mobility).

Since the beginning of Horizon 2020 and with regards to challenges of industry and society for transportation and mobility, CEA Tech has been involved in more than 20 projects.

Projects in the area of infrastructure, Intelligent Traffic System (ITS) and safety: 5G CARMEN (connectivity), AUTOPILOT (automated mobility), BONVOYAGE (multimodal travel), Cloud-LSVA (ADAS), HIGHTS (cooperative localisation), IT2RAIL (rail), SAFE STRIP (infrastructure), SECREDAS (cybersecurity), TRACE (semiconductor), VI-DAS (ADAS).

Projects in the area of sustainable mobility: EBSF (bus), eCAIMAN (battery), ESPRIT (e-mobility), EVERLASTING (battery), GasOn (gas), i-HeCoBatt (battery), iModBatt (battery), ModulED (e-motor), OBELICS (e-drive), SPICY (battery).
