2014 was a year full of projects and innovations!
From the R&D side, we have had the pleasure to start a new project as a leader, as part of the European program CleanSky, with Thales Avionics and Atmosphere. It aims at building a data base of actual flight plan data and the development of a test platform for the future Flight Management System of Thales Avionics. This project, called FLIP (Flight Plans), is planned to be completed in 2015.
Two other collaborative European R&D projects, initiated in 2012, were completed: Moorinspect -a future robot, aimed at the automatic inspection of mooring chains in deep-water offshore facilities, and PlastronicsSpecs -development of an automated digital radiography system for the inspection of plastic electronics. Both projects were exciting, with a real technical success. To be continued!
Finally, we have continued our R&D efforts in the development of our contactless fall sensor, with the support of the Midi-Pyrenees Region and the Digital Place cluster. Several conferences and presentations have been exposed throughout the year, to our partners and our future clients, who are following this development with a strong interest. The prototype is now running in a pilot nursing home. To be continued too!
From the software development side, we also have some exciting applications: new developments with Airbus in acoustics in connection with our TrackReport tool, and a new 3D tracking application with cameras using TrackImage. Moreover, a new scope for TrackReport: the automatic analysis of electric motor testing data, for our new customer Leroy Somer (Emerson). We also focused on studies of new algorithms in image processing, in particular the multi-image registration for the visualization of flows for our customer EDF...
Finally, internationally, we are proud to have new prestigious customers in Japan, thanks to our partner Toyo Corp., in India, with our partner Megatech, as well as in the USA!
As for our products, TrackImage and TrackReport, developments are going on. New features, new tracking algorithms, including 3D motion tracking and objects deformation measurements for TrackImage. The version 3 of TrackImage, linked with our automatic report generation software TrackReport, meets a great success with our former and new customers.
These large projects and this growth was supported in 2014 by the arrival of new employees in our team: Domenico, in charge of business development, Florian, Cyril, Sibiri and Jerome in the technical team. Welcome to all!
In 2015 ... New R&D projects, new ideas for our products TrackImage and TrackReport, new studies… All ORME team wishes you a happy new year 2015! Let it be full of projects and innovations!
