The main objective of the NCRM team is to develop functionalities to equip mobile robots with perception, information processing, decision-making and action capabilities that will enable them to operate without human intervention in various environments. These can range from domestic spaces (robotic wheelchair, vacuum cleaner, lawnmower, etc.) to public and workspaces (cyber-cars, surveillance robots, museum guide robots, cleaning robots, demining robots, smart car, etc.). We are then interested in the navigation and control aspects that will make these systems tend towards an autonomous and risk-free operation in imperfect environments by controlling the interaction between the robot and its environment.

The main team thematic are:

Navigation, localization, planning, human-robot interaction, perception.

 

Projects:

 

FNR: NAvigation of Electric Vehicles platforms: towards Intelligent Transport (NAVETI)

 

Socio-economic:

Project 1: Semi-Autonomous Wheelchair (FAURSA)

Project 2: Surveillance robot in indoor environment (ROSMI)

Equipment:

Car-like mobile robots (Robucar, Cycab, Robucabs), robot guide B21r, robotic wheelchair.
