The Fact project is a joint research project in the scope of the ICT-Asia programme founded by the French Ministry of foreign affairs, the CNRS and INRIA. It aims at conducting common research activities in the area of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). The main objective is to develop new technologies related to the concept of “Cybercar”. The project involves the following research teams : e-Motion project at INRIA Rhône-Alpes (leader), Imara project at INRIA Rocquencourt, LASMEA Laboratory at Clermont-Ferrand, SungKyunKwan University (Korea), Shangai Giao Tong University (China), Nanyang Technological University (Singapore) and Tokyo University (Japan). This project has been prolongated by a new project (named “City Home”) co-leaded by Ph. Martinet from LASMEA and C. Laugier from e-Motion/INRIA. Several public demonstrations of the results have been planned in France (Clermont-Ferrand) and in China (Shanghai).
