Robotics is interested in situations with interactions between artificial systems and their physical environment, which may also include human operators. Our research takes the perspective of the artificial system, seeking to fit it out with mechanisms for perception, cognition, collaboration and action to enable optimal operation in a complex environment, which could be everyday situations as well as enterprises or production floors. Our services dedicated to large data volumes are supported by the competencies of 150 experts.
Optimise operation, generate income
Thanks to analytics, research and marketing firms are able to compare product design and manufacturing data with those from its actual functioning and analyse the resulting costs in order to optimise the life cycle and fuel the company's innovation strategy.
Thus, for instance, analytics optimises operational efficiency,generates new ideas and proposals and opens new doors, with a view towards growth in turnover.
Another feature of analytics is that, unlike simulation – which is based on scientific reasoning, with a great deal of mathematical equations and physics concepts – analytics falls more under empirical reasoning. In other words, this marks a major step forward in data management and processing methods, taking uncertainty into account.
Test engineers spend a significant portion of their time "juggling" between test data from physical sensors, analysers and digital simulators. While specialised solutions in data acquisition, analysis and management are in fact available, practically none of these covers the entire testing life cycle, from logging to evaluation and application of the test findings.
Leaving notes on a post-it, poster, sign or board is one of the more simple and direct methods that people use to communicate. Indeed, team meetings often need to use a white board to collect and organise ideas. Meetings of this kind often take place simultaneously, at sites separated by significant distances.

François Calvignac started his career in the railway industry in Reichshoffen, in France's Alsace region, working for Alstom Transport. After two years as a dynamic calculation engineer, he took on the design, construction and commissioning of the Alstrom collision testing centre (Dynaccess). This marked the start of three exciting years, involving launching trains at walls!
After five years, François decided to return to his home region of Toulouse and join Sogeti High Tech in 2006. His first mission consisted in validating the structure of the wing surface of an aircraft after aerodynamic improvements to the wing tips.
François then completed expertise missions at structural laboratories or in projects related to flight recorders.
After leading several assignments as a commitments manager, François is now in charge of developing new areas of activity, particularly in relation to innovation and the EALIS project.

Philippe Ravix joined Sogeti High Tech as Director of Innovation in January of 2010, where he created and developed the HighTechLabs R&D department around three main objectives:
- Develop our own IP by cultivating solutions.
- Deploy a culture of innovation in the organisation.
- Execute co-innovation projects with the R&D authors.
