Highlights of the Year

  • Charles Consel was on sabbatical in Montreal at McGill Unversity for the academic year of 2012-2013. This sabbatical year has allowed us to strenghten our academic collaborations in the domain of assistive technology (e.g., Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal, Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières).

  • iQSpot, our technology-transfer project, has been rewarded by OSEO (15e édition du Concours national d'aide à la création d'entreprises de technologies innovantes, catégorie "En émergence") and accepted to the startup incubation program of the IRA (Incubateur Régional d'Aquitaine).

  • David Daney, a researcher in Robotics, left the COPRIN project-team of CRI Sophia Antipolis-Méditerranée to join the PHOENIX project-team in September 2013. He will be investigating research topics such as system design, sensor deployment and data analysis.
