French tech cluster PICOM innovates in retail at EUROSHOP 2014

24.01.2014
For the first time, France’s PICOM competitiveness cluster is exhibiting at the EUROSHOP 2014 trade show.

PICOM, which is supported by the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, will be presenting seven of its members in the EUROCIS Section. EUROSHOP is the foremost international exhibition for solutions and equipment in the distribution sector; the trade fair will take place from 16 to 20 February 2014 in Düsseldorf (Germany).

PICOM, which was established in 2006 in the north of France (near the city of Lille), is France’s competitiveness cluster for the retail sector: PICOM has, among its members, most of France’s biggest retailers as well as 15 R&D centres. PICOM is supported by the regional council of Nord-Pas-de-Calais.

PICOM will be presenting seven of its members on the French Pavilion, organized by UBIFRANCE, at Display 7aG24 (Hall 7), at the EUROSHOP trade fair. EUROSHOP will take place in mid-February (16 to 20), in Düsseldorf (Western Germany).

PICOM is currently building a strategy involving partnerships abroad. It is unifying a network of businesses and R&D facilities with a wide range of acknowledged competencies. Over 100 companies are now partners in the Cluster, one-third of which are technology SMEs, as well as 15 research laboratories gathering several hundred researchers specialised in ICT.

The French companies that will be showcased at EUROSHOP all run innovative projects in connection with the areas of activity covered by the Cluster. Visitors are encouraged to visit the stand to meet representatives from each of the companies listed below. Further information on the exhibitors can be provided on request.

About PICOM

PICOM, which was established in 2006 in Northern France (near the city of Lille), is France’s competitiveness cluster for the retail sector: PICOM has, among its members, most of France’s largest retailers as well as 15 R&D centres. PICOM is supported by the regional council of Nord-Pas-de-Calais.

PICOM’s R&D policy runs along several avenues of research, including that of ubiquitous worlds (where it will become possible for consumers to shop anywhere, at any time), as illustrated by the New Shopping Experience® concept.

Launched in 2010, this initiative heralds what the shopping experience will be like in the near future. It is being implemented with the help of innovative SMEs and ICT research teams, and supported by major distribution brands. In the past four years, the New Shopping Experience® scheme has staged over 30 innovative projects.

In 2013, PICOM began a new approach by creating the Shopping Innovation Lab, a project which was recently taken up by the French government thanks to its Programme d’Investissements d’Avenir (or Future Investments Programme).

The programme, driven by PICOM and its partners, is the only one of its kind in Europe and provides genuine backing for innovation in the field of commerce and related technologies. The programme will feature an R&D laboratory, with fully equipped technological facilities, and will provide businesses and research teams with high value-added services to boost innovation in commerce.

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...

Im Focus: Wrinkles give heat a jolt in pillared graphene

Rice University researchers test 3-D carbon nanostructures' thermal transport abilities

Pillared graphene would transfer heat better if the theoretical material had a few asymmetric junctions that caused wrinkles, according to Rice University...
