« Smart Sensors » have been acknowledged as a transverse technology by AREVA entities involved in new constructions, revamping and for the extension of plant lifetime. These new technology have been adopted by the other industrial markets especially in countries with a high potential for industrial development such as China. Various benefits are expected: predictive maintenance, remote maintenance, remote adjusting, commissioning. These new technologies increase the cyber security target of a facility and this is taken into account during the works. Today, AREVA partially uses the technical abilities of « smart sensors » in some facilities (Chemical plant, …). Corporate R&D and Innovation together with the Group entities manage a technological roadmap, named « Smart sensor », in order to appraise the performance, contributions and future normative technological developments... A modular approach has been implemented through validation technological platforms. Two platforms have been implemented, one to appraise the Field Control System and the other to appraise wireless technologies. This project will end with the construction of a showroom for AREVA Clients and with a training program dedicated to AREVA staff. The main results obtained since two years of operation in terms of distributed algorithms at the sensor level will be presented during this conference.
