Bilateral Contracts with Industry

DGArapid WIFUZ (2015-2017).

F. Forbes is the principal investigator for MISTIS of the 2 year project WIFUZ on WIreless multi sensors FUSion. The project is supported by DGA and led by the ACOEM company http://www.acoemgroup.fr/ and involves another company, the HIKOB startup, http://www.hikob.com/ . The objective is to develop a prototype for surveillance and monitoring that is able to combine multi sensor data coming from acoustic sensors (microphones or antennas) and optical sensors (infrared cameras) and to distribute the processing to multiple algorithmic blocs. The financial support for MISTIS is of 122,4 keuros for a project of a total cost of 375 keuros.

CIFRE PhD with SCHNEIDER (2015-2018).

F. Forbes and S. Girard are the advisors of a starting CIFRE PhD (T. Rahier) with Schneider Electric. The other advisor is S. Marié from Schneider Electric. The goal is to develop specific data mining techniques able to merge and to take advantage of both structured and unstructured (meta)data collected by a wide variety of Schneider Electric sensors to improve the quality of insights that can be produced. The total financial support for MISTIS will be of 165 keuros.

PhD contract with EDF (2015-2018).

S. Girard is the advisor of a starting PhD (A. Clement) with EDF. The goal is to investigate sensitivity analysis and extrapolation limits in Extreme value theory with application to river flows analysis.
