Our areas of expertise

You can leverage the unique skills of the teams of the Carnot institute, covering the whole of the development process for software and intelligent systems  across 4 main strategic fields:



  • Healthcare: assistance in medical and surgical procedures, computer assisted surgery,  administrative monitoring systems, information systems and human body modelling

  • Intelligent buildings: improvement in buildings' performance (energy consumption, communication), integration of technology and home automation management, comfort and home support

  • Transport: development and optimisation of performance of embedded components, control/command of systems and subsystems, management of sensor networks and vehicle flow networks

  • System Design: design of solid languages by construction, development of computer assisted design tools for SoCs, NoCs, MEMS, dual analogue-digital circuits, groups and subgroups, testing tools and integration of automatic testing solutions, methods and solutions for optimising autonomy, reliability, safety/security, etc.

Data Analysis

This cross-disciplinary topic groups together the technology surrounding the analysis of data modelling, data mining and extraction of large volumes of data, data fusion, and automatic learning (machine learning). It also contains numerous applications for recommendation systems, fraud detection, e-marketing, and biotechnology.

Embedded Systems

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.)


For many years the teams at the Carnot...

Modelling & Simulation

Progress in digital methods and improvement of computer performance enable the prediction of complex systems’ behaviour, thanks to more and more detailed models and simulations. The applications of such skills are varied – automobiles, aerospace, health, environment, virtual reality, etc.

The LSI Carnot Institute can offer you its skills in modelling/simulation for your industrial...

Protocols and Communication Systems

In a world where communication systems are omnipresent, innovations affect the whole of society. The skills necessary for the development of a communication system in a networked environment range from skills in low-level electronics to high-level ICT skills, not to mention information theory, information routing, radiofrequency transmissions, and embedded computing.

The teams at the LSI Carnot Institute are developing new network architectures and new...

Robotics / Automation

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....

Signal Processing

Signal processing techniques have numerous applications, for example in telecommunications, audio (voice recognition, correction, etc.), video (shape recognition, movement monitoring, etc.), geophysics with magnetic resonance imaging - MRI), or space (processing of satellite photos or radar images).


The teams at the Carnot Institute LSI have extensive expertise in observation, acquisition, analysis, and interpretation...

Software Engineering

Software engineering methods and development methodologies are essential tools for IT professionals  as their economic impact is ultimately very important (development costs, the quality and future-proofing of the product, maintenance, stability, usage).

Internationally recognised in their field, and the driving force behind much of the existing technology and methodology in socio-economic terms, the teams at the Carnot Institute LSI possess high...

Technology for Health and Well-Being

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.

Testing and Validation of Systems

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,...

Distributed Software Architecture

In a world of networking where information technology resources offer larger and larger calculation possibilities, and where cloud computing is a solution to many of the issues prevalent in society and Industry (energy conservation, service continuity, reductions in infrastructure costs, etc.), distributed software architectures meet the needs of the academic community just as well as those of society.

The teams at the LSI Carnot Institute are...

Man-machine interaction

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.

With numerous skills and innovative methods that are recognised in this field, the teams...
