Origin of the project

Chroma is a bi-localized project-team at Inria Grenoble Rhône-Alpes in Grenoble and Lyon cities.

It was originally founded by members of Inria project-team eMotion led by Christian Laugier (2002-2014) and teacher-researchers from INSA Lyon (National Institute of Applied Sciences. INSA Lyon is part of the University de Lyon) working in the robotic group led by Prof. Olivier Simonin in CITI Lab.
