National Initiatives


Participant : Vincent Drevelle.

no Inria Sophia 10204, duration: 42 months.

This project started in November 2015. It involves a consortium managed by Litis in Rouen with IGN Matis (Paris), Le2i (Le Creusot) and Inria (Chorale group in Sophia-Antipolis and Rainbow). The project is focused on robust long-term mapping of urban environments. Map building consists in the acquisition of a textured 3-D model of urban environment, and automatic semantic labelling of the environment features (roads, buildings, cars, etc.). From this model, an optimal representation is generated and made available in the cloud, in the form of a network of RGB-D-L spheres storing photometry, geometry (depth) and object labels. Mobile agents are able to determine their position and navigate in the sphere graph using dense matching. Agents upload significant environment changes to the sphere server in cloud, for map update purposes.

ANR Sesame

Participant : François Chaumette.

no Inria 13722, duration: 48 months.

This project started in January 2019. It involves a consortium managed by LS2N (Nantes) with LIP6 (Paris) and Rainbow group. It aims at analysing singularity and stability issues in visual servoing.

Equipex Robotex

Participants : Fabien Spindler, François Chaumette.

no Inria Rennes 6388, duration: 9 years.

Rainbow is one of the 15 French academic partners involved in the Equipex Robotex network that started in February 2011. It is devoted to get and manage significant equipment in the main robotics labs in France. In the scope of this project, we have obtained the humanoid robot Romeo in 2015.
