The automotive industry in the Val d'Oise

media24893

The implementation of collaborative projects to take up these new challenges is vital, and the Val d'Oise is willing and ready to get involved both through multinationals' local research laboratories and innovating SMEs.

GROWTH OF THE ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION INDUSTRY
carre The automotive industry uses robotics both in production and in embedded robotics. The robotics and automation industry is growing every year. Having begun in Asian countries such as Japan, it is gradually spreading to the rest of the world. The Val d'Oise sees itself as a player in this industry for several reasons: for many years it has had an exchange agreement with the city of Osaka in Japan, the future world robot capital. In 2000, it formed the Val d'Oise Japan club, gathering some sixty companies, and there are regular 

exchanges between the EISTI (the International School of Data Processing Sciences) and the robotics centre in Osaka. The presence of the Swiss-Swedish group ABB, with around 700 employees at ABB MC in Cergy-Pontoise will no doubt further strengthen the reputation of the Val d'Oise, encouraging other French and foreign companies to locate there in the future.

MECHATRONICS REVOLUTIONISES THE AUTOMOTIVE WORLD
carre Electronics in the automobile world has taken a resolutely innovative direction, with the goal of guiding and controlling all the functions of a vehicle in order to improve comfort and safety, whilst reducing overall energy consumption and air pollution emissions. With these developments it has become apparent that electronics can no longer be 

« placed alongside » a mechanical unit to be controlled by it, but must be inserted, integrated and deployed within the mechanical unit itself. The design of new electronic components therefore requires the convergence of the worlds of mechanics and electronics, creating a new discipline: mechatronics. The notion of integration lies at the very heart of mechatronic design.

RBRINGING TOGETHER RESEARCHERS AND COMPANIES ONCE A YEAR
carre As part of the efforts by the CESE 95 (Val d'Oise Further Education / Company Forum) to bring further education institutions and SMEs and SMIs closer together in the département, the CEEVO is heavily involved each year in the Val d'Oise Research and Innovation Week.
A wide variety of events are on offer locally during the course of the week: lectures, visits to factories, companies and research laboratories, business meetings, and so on. Free of charge and open to all, this event is an opportunity to get to know some of the companies and laboratories in the automobile industry as well as the projects which are part of the Mov'eo competitiveness cluster.
One recent edition, based on competitiveness clusters, enabled participants to discover the involvement of two Val d'Oise engineering schools in the Mov'eo cluster: the EPMI and its Cisco academy and the ITIN, as well as some of the manufacturing secrets of Autoliv and the Soufflerie Climatique d'Île-de-France wind tunnel.
