National Initiatives

Inria IPL PAL Personally Assisted Living

Participants : François Charpillet, Olivier Simonin, Mihai Andries.

The PAL project is a national Inria Large Scale Initiative involving several teams of the institute (Arobas, Coprin, E-motion, Lagadic, Demar, Maia, Prima, Pulsar and Trio). It is coordinated by David Daney (Inria Sophia-Antipolis, EPI Coprin). The project focuses on the study and experiment of models for health and well-being. Maia is particularly involved in the People Surveillance work package, by studying and developping intelligent environments and distributed tracking devices for people walking analysis and robotic assistance (smart tiles, 3D camera network, assistant robots).

The PhD of Mihai Andries in funded by the PAL project.

PIA LAR Living Assistant Robot

Participants : François Charpillet, Abdallah Dib.

Partners : Crédit Agricole, Diatelic, Robosoft

LAR project has the objective to designing an assistant robot to improve the autonomy and quality of life for elderly and fragile persons. The project started at the beginning of the year. The role of the Maia Team is to develop a simultaneous localisation and mapping algorithm using a RGB-D camera. The main issue is to develop an algorithm able to deal with dynamic environment. An other issue is for the robot to be able to behave with acceptable social skills.



Participants : François Charpillet, Olivier Simonin.

Dominique Martinez (Cortex team, Inria NGE) is an external collaborator and the coordinator of the project for Nancy members.

PHEROTAXIS is an “Investissements d’Avenir” ANR 2011-2014 (Coordination: J.-P. Rospars, UMR PISC, INRA Versailles).

The theme of the research is localisation of odour sources by insects and robots. By associating experimental data with models, the project aims at defining a behavioral model of olfactive processes. This work provides several applications, in particular the development of bio-inspired components highly sensitive and selective.

The project is organized in five work packages and involves the PISC research unit (Versailles), Pasteur Institute (Paris) and LORIA/Inria institute (Nancy).
