Bilateral Contracts with Industry

VOLVO-Renault Trucks Group (2016-2019)

Participants : Olivier Simonin, Jilles Dibangoye, Guillaume Bono, Mohamad Hobballah, Laetitia Matignon.

This collaboration has been built inside the INSA-VOLVO Chair, led by Prof. Didier Remond (INSA). In this context, the Chair funds the PhD Thesis of Guillaume Bono (2016-19) in Chroma. The objective is to study how machine learning techniques can deal with optimization of goods distribution using a fleet of autonomous vehicles. In the following of the first results, VOLVO proposed to extend our collaboration by funding a Post-doc position concerning good distribution with platoons of autonomous vehicles. This is the Post-Doc of Mohamad Hobballah, started on February 2018.

Toyota Motor Europe (2006 - 2018)

Participants : Christian Laugier, David Sierra González, Özgür Erkent, Jilles Dibangoye, Christian Wolf.

The contract with Toyota Motors Europe is a joint collaboration involving Toyota Motors Europe, Inria and ProbaYes. It follows a first successful short term collaboration with Toyota in 2005. This contract aims at developing innovative technologies in the context of automotive safety. The idea is to improve road safety in driving situations by equipping vehicles with the technology to model on the fly the dynamic environment, to sense and identify potentially dangerous traffic participants or road obstacles, and to evaluate the collision risk. The sensing is performed using sensors commonly used in automotive applications such as cameras and lidar.

This collaboration has been extended in 2018 for 4 years (period 2018-2021) and Toyota provides us with an experimental vehicle Lexus equipped with various sensing and control capabilities. Several additional connected technical contracts have also been signed, and an exploitation licence for the CMCDOT software has been bought by Toyota in 2018.
