Smart Cities

Challenges posed by reducing energy consumption, developing renewable energy and by climate change can only be met thanks to photonic technologies.

Initial examples of this are LED technology, photovoltaic panels and automatic waste sorting machinery.
Photonics possesses many assets concerning detection, monitoring, handling and measuring.
Today, the quality of sensors and the miniaturisation of systems means that optical scanners can be used on soil, water and air analysis sites.

Scanning technology also facilitates the adaptation and optimisation of energy consumption, such as motor fuel consumption or that of Mediterranean buildings by offering new solutions in the form of absorbent surfaces and thermal insulation diagnosis systems.
