Project Partners


The Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics (ISIR UMR 7222) is a laboratory belonging to University Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris and associated to the National Center of Scientific Research (CNRS). It gathers researchers from various disciplines such as mechatronics, signal processing, computer science and neuroscience. Researches developed at ISIR are particularly focused towards emergent applications in Robotics. In general, they are grounded on methods such as modelling, analysis and conception of dynamical systems and perceptual systems.

The partners of this project particularly belong to the AMAC team of ISIR : Architectures and Models for Adaptation and Cognition. One of the areas of expertise of the team is to design control and cognitive architectures integrating multi-modal perception, localization and mapping, multiple-strategy-based navigation (path planning, cue-guided, path integration) and learning.

Established in 1967, Laboratoire d’Analyse et d’Architecture des Systèmes (LAAS) is a laboratory of CNRS, the French National Organisation for Scientific Research. It is associated with three university institutions in Toulouse: UPS, INSA, and INP. LAAS has a permanent staff of over 320, together with (on average) 260 doctorate students. Research at LAAS covers Automatic Control, Computer Science and Engineering, and Microelectronics. The Robotics and Artificial Intelligence Department, the largest in France (25 staff, 48 PhD students, and 7 postdocs), is active in research on intelligent and autonomous robotic systems. The team involved in this proposal is composed of members from the Robotics and Interactions group.

LAAS brings to the project its competence in control architectures and in decisional issues and more particularly for human-robot interaction and collaborative task achievement. LAAS also brings his experience in developing and deploying integrated fully autonomous robots in public spaces. The focus of its activity will be the study of models and the development of task planning and control systems that are relevant for a autonomous interactive robotic endowed with social awareness: issues of intentionality, responsiveness, acceptability and pertinence of the robot generated actions are central in this work.
