The CONNECT proposal (CONtrol of NEtworked Cooperative sysTems) deals with the problem of controlling multi-agent systems, i.e., systems composed of several sub-systems interconnected between them by an heterogeneous communication network. The control of a cluster of agents composed of autonomous underwater vehicles, marine surface vessels, and possibly aerial drones will be used as a support example all along the proposal. The partners are the NeCS team, I fremer robotics lab. and the R OBOSOFT and P rolexia companies. It started in May 2007, for a duration of 3 and a half years; the project will end on February 2011.

C.¬†Canudas de Wit, in collaboration with Franck Quaine and Violaine Cahou√ęt (from the biomechanical team of GIPSA-Lab) is involved in a project named VOLHAND, funded by the ANR, which has started in October 2009. The project aims at developing a new generation of Electrical power-assisted steering specifically designed for disabled and aged people. Our contribution is to work out new assisted laws that accomodate to the specific mechanical characteristics of this particular driver population. The consortium is composed by: LAMIH, CHRU, Fondation Hopale, GIPSA-Lab, INRETS and JTEKT. This project is in collaboration with the biomechanical team of GIPSA-Lab.
