Technology advances, for embedded devices inside vehicles or communication systems between vehicles (V2V) or with road infrastructure (V2R), allow to significantly improve the security of drivers and road users.
One of our goals is to propose new low-cost and energy-efficient mobile communications solutions to ease and make safer road traffic conditions. Considering "intelligent" road signs and vehicles, i.e. equipped with an autonomous radio communication system, drivers will be able to receive at any time various information about traffic fluidity or road sign identification. In particular, cooperative MIMO techniques are used to decrease the energy consumption of the communications.
Other research related to automative systems is for example the design of proved accurate fixed-point controllers.
