Stéphane Masson, software engineer for software fitting in the pocket


I have been working for 15 years in embedded systems, communicating objects and now mobile applications. Passionate about technology and entrepreneurship, I started my career in the microelectronics field (at STMicroelectronics) where I worked on the new communication protocols by participating in the creation of the first Wifi cards, and in the first IPv6 deployments on home gateway / set top box. Then I participated in the standardization of protocols such as MIPI UniPro (today in the Google Ara phones). I took the mobile turn by joining Inside Secure where I helped major mobile phone manufacturers to integrate the NFC component into their device.

Today, through Picodev, I advise on the architecture of objects, including their communication system with the outside world and the impact on the software and hardware architecture of these choices. I intervene from the object's firmware, to the API servers via the mobile application.

Virginie UHLMANN



Adrien MALLET, 24 years old, fox trainer and design engineer at Picodev since January 2018.


Owner of a DUT GEII (electrical and industrial software engineering) in 2014, I got, three years later, my engineering degree EEO (ecotechnology electronics and optics).
My skills ?

  • Image processing ! My project for reading comics with sound reproduction on Android mobile app for an end-of-studies project forum 2017 won the 4th prize.
  • Embedded systems! Arduino, Raspberry Pi, ESP32, STM32 and Pic 18 have no secrets for me.
  • Tennis, and sports in general, History and new technologies.

One time, the Nao robot was even my best friend! I had the opportunity to work on his capabilities in order to implement them in a home, to serve a single and dependent person.
Another time, just for the pleasure of a very good trip that I was planning in Las Vegas, I created the prototype of a connected object presented at CES in 2018: choice of components, programing of the microcontroller, creation of the smartphone app and communication between the app and the object in BLE. But money did not come out of slot machines ...

Closer to home, on the occasion of Sido 2018, like Saint-Ex, it's a fox (stuffed) - Mulder -, that I had to tame, to animate the stand Picodev and show our knowledge in board and AI. The goal of the game was to have the Led crest light up with its gold necklace (good, a plastic curbstone) in a particular color according to a specific hand sign or an object recognized.
