ESIGELEC provides valuable applied research designed to solve the industry's most pressing problems through IRSEEM ("Institut de Recherche en Systèmes Electroniques Embarqués", Research Institute for Embedded Electronic Systems in English). IRSEEM was established in 2001 by ESIGELEC with contributions from the Rouen Chamber of Commerce and Industry, around forty manufacturing companies, and significant support from the government, the Haute-Normandie region and the European Union.
IRSEEM bases its agenda on five central missions:
IRSEEM and its researchers offer skills in a combination of electronics, automation, and IT to further industry progress in a specific set of disciplines. These include EMC and the reliability of components and systems, radiofrequency and microwave circuits (design, modelling and characterization), autonomous and connected mobile systems (perception and localization), and tolerance control for system faults (robust control, diagnosis/prognosis and estimation). IRSEEM specializes in upstream research, creating knowledge-based on three broad themes:
