Heudi­asyc (HEUris­tique et DIAg­nos­tic des SYs­tèmes Com­plex­es) is a lab­o­ra­to­ry man­aged joint­ly by Uni­ver­sité de Tech­nolo­gie de Com­piègne and CNRS (CNRS Com­put­er Sci­ences).

The Direc­tor (Philippe Bon­ni­fait) and Deputy Direc­tor (Yves Grand­valet) are assist­ed by team leaders.

Heudi­asy­c’s work is in the area of infor­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion sci­ences, and more pre­cise­ly in com­put­er sci­ence, auto­mat­ic con­trol, robot­ics, and arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence.

Heudi­asyc con­stant­ly seeks to har­ness syn­er­gies between upstream inves­tiga­tive research and tar­get­ed research in its quest to address some of the big issues fac­ing soci­ety, namely:

  • Mobil­i­ty
  • Trans­port
  • Com­mu­ni­ca­tion
  • Secu­ri­ty

The aim is to devel­op ways of rep­re­sent­ing, analysing and con­trol­ling sys­tems that are sub­ject to cri­te­ria and con­straints, whether these be expressed in sci­en­tif­ic, tech­no­log­i­cal, eco­nom­ic, or social terms.

Research is orga­nized around three teams:

  • CID: Knowl­edge, Uncer­tain­ty, Data
  • SCOP: Depend­abil­i­ty, Com­mu­ni­ca­tion, Optimization
  • SyRI: Robot­ic sys­tems in interaction

Along­side these research teams, Heudi­asy­c’s Admin­is­tra­tion and Finance Unit and its Tech­nol­o­gy Plat­forms Unit pro­vide day-to-day support.
