Control of the processes is the main challenge of the « factory of the future » : energy savings, process optimization, proactiveness are the main parameters to control.
For example: on-line manufacturing control, assembly bench, tests systems, optical sorting, robots.
Ecological transition challenges are nowadays well known. However many tools are still missing to answer the needs. Optoelectronics technology can be very innovative in that area.
For example: pollution detection, remote control of pollutants, diagnostic systems, spectral analysis.
Being able to detect threats in early stage using precise defense systems into a risky environment becomes a large trend.
For example : glare systems, gas detection, range finder systems, laser pointing.
Space exploration is more and more under technological and budgetary constrains. Photonics systems, thanks to precision and miniaturization, can address those challenges : they can help to mimic complex systems by reproducing real situations.
For example : Stars simulation, LEDs testing set up.
