This store is intended to be both:

  • An educational platform serving new innovative technologies (IoT,VLC, GPS, LiFi, RFID, circadian lighting, connected glasses, drones...) in real context.
  • A pilot platform for manufacturers in the field of connected objects / sensors and for players in the retail industry.
  • A research platform to work on disciplinary or interdisciplinary topics
  • .

This is a multidisciplinary project combining the skills of 5 training departments of the IUT, as well as the work of teachers, teacher-researchers, technical staff and students:

  • GEII Marseille and GEII Salon: Electrical Engineering and Industrial Computing. - IoT electronics, indoor communication protocols and drones
  • MP Marseille : Physical Measurements
    - Smart sensors, VLC communication, LiFi, circadian lighting and indoor energy harvesting
  • R&T Marseille: Networks and Telecommunications
  • TC Marseille: Marketing Techniques. Customer experience, marketing, retail and communication

Since the project’s launch in 2019, more than 220 students and some 20 teachers and teacher-researchers have already worked on educational or research projects aimed at rethinking and improving the in-store customer experience of tomorrow. The inauguration will be followed by a tour of the premises and technical demonstrations by students in the presence of companies that have been partners in the project since its launch.
