Joint research program INRIA/FAPESP
Participants : Patrick Rives, Ezio Malis, Pascal Morin.
The project AURORA (Autonomous Unmanned Remote Monitoring Robotic Airship ) led by the LRV/IA/CenPRA aimed at the development of an airship dedicated to observation. Collaboration agreements on this theme were signed between Inria, Brazilian CNPq and FAPESP, and Portugese GRICES. In such a context, Geraldo Silveira carried on a PhD thesis in the ARobAS team with a funding from the national brezilian agency CAPES. This thesis was defended last year. A new collaboration project between INRIA and the CTI of Campinas has been recently submitted to pursue this collaboration and investigate new research themes.
