OPTIS is specialized in optical simulation.

OPTIS develops light simulation software (SPEOS®) and provides consulting services in the fields of optics, optronics, lighting, visual ergonomics, virtual reality and real-time simulation. The realism of the computer generated images, created using physicsbased algorithms, makes it possible to make informed decisions about the lighting, appearance and quality of a future product using realistic digital models.

OPTIS develops visual perception and sensory perception models which make it possible to display on a screen, or in a virtual reality center, a realistic representation of what an observer or sensor perceives during a specific event and in specific conditions (environment, artificial lighting and natural light).

About Optis

SPEOS® software has been adopted by companies of all sizes, from SMEs to major industrial groups such as
Airbus, Audi, CEA, DCNS, EADS, Koito, Matsushita, NIKON, PSA, SONY, Thales… for the design of lighting
systems, light guides, low consumption LED systems, cockpit design, electronic equipment and optical sensors,
etc… The OPTIC process can incorporate measurements taken in a photometric laboratory and the creation of
digital models.

Concrete examples of applications

– Design of LED lighting systems, UV insulation systems for electronic cards, UV insolation systems for decontamination purposes, optical control system for glass product packaging, colour control, LED cockpit lighting, LED headlamps and tail lights. Enhanced man-machine interfaces through the choice of display technologies and ambient lighting, with accurate consideration of issues such as reflection in confined or strongly-lit environments
– Design of simulation equipment for vehicle driveability, aircraft landing and maritime navigation taking into account light conditions and effects (lighthouses, cockpit environment) and driver/pilot/navigator perception
– Measurement of BRDF (Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function), intensity and luminance. Simulation of the lighting impact of a building on its environment: shadow, reflection, visibility and appearance of solar panels. Development of simulation software for mega joule ghost images and reflections and optronic radiation exchange.
