The Aerospace Valley World Competitiveness Cluster allies the Midi-Pyrenees & Aquitaine regions to constitute Europes leading pool of jobs in the field of aeronautics, space and embedded systems. The purpose of the Aerospace Valley cluster is to grow jobs in its regions in the aeronautics, space and embedded systems sectors. 11,000 new jobs have already been created in the last three years (INSEE figures).
In embedded systems, the clusters development priorities focus on:
the dependability and reliability of embedded systems at all levels (software/hardware)
performance, modularity and the quality of mechanical, electrical-IT parts and energy development
systems diagnosis and prognosis
new modes of human-system interaction and inter-systems communication
the design of smaller, less expensive and more powerful components
Embedded systems also offer numerous opportunities for diversification, particularly in the areas of health, energy and home automation.
