National Initiatives

ANR Psirob SCUAV (Sensory Control of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles)

Participants : Claude Samson, Tarek Hamel, Pascal Morin.

This project concerns the control of small underactuated Aerial Vehicles with Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) capabilities. Our participation is more specifically dedicated to the development of feedback control strategies in order to stabilize the system's motion despite diverse adverse phenomena, such as modeling errors associated with the vehicle's aerodynamics or pertubations induced e.g. by wind gusts.

Our partners are I3S UNSA-CNRS (Sophia-Antipolis), IRISA/Lagadic (Rennes), CEA/LIST (Fontenay-aux-roses), Heudiasyc (Compi├Ęgne), and Bertin Technologies (Montigny-le-Bretonneux).

ANR Tosa CityVIP

Participants : Patrick Rives, Andrew Comport, Maxime Meilland, Alexandre Chapoulie, Mathieu Seiler.

This project, in the continuation of the "Automated Road Scenario", focuses on low speed applications (<30 km/h) in an open, or partly open, urban context. The level of automatisation can vary from limited driving assistance to full autonomy. An important effort is devoted to the use of on-board vision for precise vehicle localization and for urban environment modeling. This model is then used for automatic guidance by applying visual servoing techniques developed by the research partners.

Our partners are Lasmea (Clermont Ferrand), IRISA/Lagadic (Rennes), Heudiasyc (Compi├Ęgne), LCPC (Nantes), IGN/Matis (Paris), Xlim (Limoges), BeNonad (Sophia Antipolis)

Collaboration with ONERA-Toulouse

P. Morin supervises the Ph.D. thesis of Henry de Plinval, young engineer at ONERA-Toulouse, on the vision-based control of helicopter drones. The thesis is co-supervised by P. Mouyon (ONERA-Toulouse).
