Recent Funded Projects

  • Co-Coordination of the Challenge team DAPAD within the Laboratory of Excellence MS2T, UTC, France, focusing on Distributed and collaborative vehicle perception to support autonomous driving (2015-2019).

We aim at enhancing the vehicle’s perception and situational awareness of the complex and highly dynamic traffic scene, for the sake of a better autonomy, while making use of more sources of information than the one provided in a standalone way by its on-board sensors. Other traffic participants like cars, buses, trucks, pedestrians, bikes, or elements of the infrastructure, all seen as nodes of a mobile ad hoc network, can helpfully share such information. We address the problem of distributed data fusion within a complex dynamic system, in which the vehicles are not controlled by others but cooperate together. Moreover, every vehicle is not necessarily cooperative: perceived vehicles/moving objects can be shared in between the cooperative vehicles network, allowing to get a complete view of the traffic scene in some situations. First tangible result of DAPAD: our participation to the Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge (GCDC, May 28-29, 2016 - Automotive Campus Helmond, The Netherlands).

  • French coordination of a Sino-French project ANR Blanc International / Ministry of Research and Chinese NSFC: “Multimodal perception and reasoning for transnational intelligent vehicles” (2012-2015). Four partners: Heudiasyc Lab., Key Lab. of machine Perception (MOE) Peking university, Inria, PSA Peugeot Citroen.
  • Principal Investigator of the LIAMA/CNRS MPR team project on “Multisensor-based perception and reasoning for intelligent vehicles” (2012-2015). Three partners: Heudiasyc Lab., Key Lab. of machine Perception (MOE), Peking university, PSA Peugeot Citroen.
  • Co-Coordination of a ICT-Asia project, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, aiming at reinforcing high-level collaborations and networks between eight laboratories from China, France, Japan and Thailand. “Vehicle perception and reasoning enhanced with digital maps” (2012-2013).
  • Partner of a Cai Yuanpei project, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Chinese CSC, with the Key Lab. of Machine Perception (MOE), Peking university. This programs aims at funding mobility for PhD students and their supervisors between France and China. (2012-2013).
