Industry joint projects

Internet of Things, connected cars, intelligent parking systems, secured timing, connected cyberphysical systems and air traffic control systems: these all rely more and more on software for flexibility and service delivery.

But these complex connected systems face significant challenges regarding security and reliability, and their increasing complexity means that the detection and remediation of business-logic vulnerabilities requires highly-skilled R&D techniques and people.

The SARCoS project aims to develop cutting-edge cognitive and automated techniques and tools for security and robustness testing at a business-logic level that will strongly impact how the industry will reduce the vulnerabilities of such complex and ever more connected systems.

This project directly involves four industry partners in four distinct application domains:
• Intelligent parking systems with Parkeon,
• Internet of Things with Easy Global Market,
• Air traffic management systems with Smartesting
• Secure timing with Gorgy Timing.

Myocardial infarction (MI) is an important cause of death worldwide. One crucial parameter to evaluate the state of the heart after MI is the viability of the myocardial segment, i.e. if the segment can recover functionally upon revascularization. MRI acquired several minutes after injection of a contrast agent
(DE-MRI) is a method of choice to evaluate the extent of MI, and by extension, to assess viable tissues after injury.

ADVANCES aims at automatically detecting the different relevant areas using deep learning approaches from a series of short-axis DE-MRI covering the left ventricle and then to make a quantification of the MI. The developped tool will be included in a dedicated and certified software available for the medical community.

SYPHER intends to explore the technological and commercial viability of an innovative whispering-gallerymode gyroscope (WGMG) as an alternative of the laser-based gyroscopes currently used in a wide diversity of hightechnology
systems, such as aeronautics and aerospace engineering, remote vehicle
guidance, robotics, and high-precision navigation in general.

This project will be led by the company iXBlue, a global leader in the design and manufacturing of innovative solutions devoted to navigation, positioning and underwater imaging, as well as shipbuilding.

In order to propose a targeted and efficient treatment of most advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), the BioCAIR project proposes to identify new biomarkers of clinical response to immunotherapies and develop innovative imaging diagnostic tools.

The consortium is a public-private partnership with skills suitable for molecular imaging studies, from molecular chemistry to preclinical imaging in close vicinity with several hospital clinical departments.

NEOTISS is a world leader in the manufacture of welded thin tubes, including titanium alloys tubes obtained by rolling and welding. As these products are potentially submitted to severe conditions (temperature, pressure, harsh environment), both their initial content in hydrogen as well as the capability to resist to its absorption in service are crucial elements in the qualification process by NEOTISS.

ICB and UTINAM will work to improve the manufacturing processes by developing new technological solutions able to limit the hydrogen absorption by the material.
