Inria International Partners

International Academics Partners
  • NAIST – Japan: RITS has a close cooperation with NAIST (Nara institute of Science and Technology), Japan since 2009. Based on this collaboration NAIST and Inria established the MoU agreement to accelerate and strengthen future research collaborations and the exchange of researchers and students. During the period February 2015 - March 2016 RITS hosted Sakriani Watiasri Sakti, assistant professor at NAIST.

  • Seoul National University - S. Korea: An International Cooperation Agreement has been signed between RITS team of Inria and the Vehicle Dynamics and Control Laboratory (VDCL) of Seoul National University (SNU). RITS and VDCL recognize the value of educational, cultural, and scientific exchanges between international research laboratories, and have determined that sufficient interest exists to establish an academic and research partnership for collaborative research and education in the area of future intelligent vehicle systems for sustainable safety and environment.

  • International Chaire “Drive4U”: Inria-RITS, Mines ParisTech, EPFL, Univ. of Berkeley (PATH Program) and Shanghai Jiao Tong Univ. (SJTU) are the academic partners of the international Chaire GAT, funded and supported by: VALEO Group, SAFRAN Group and MPSA Group (Peugeot-Citroën). A recent NDA has been signed recently. This Chaire will promote and fund academic activities related to Ground Automated Transportation and autonomous driving.

ECOS Nord – Venezuela
  • ECOS Nord

  • Title: "Les Techniques de l’Information et de la Communication pour la Conception de Systèmes Avancés de Mobilité durable en Milieu Urbain."

  • International Partner (Institution - Laboratory - Researcher):

    - Simon Bolivar University, Department of Mecatronics – Venezuela. Dr. Gerardo Fernandez

    - Inria, RITS Project-Team – France. Dr. Fawzi Nashashibi

  • Duration: Jan. 2014 - Dec. 2017

  • Start year: 2014

  • The main objective of this project is to contribute scientifically and technically to the design of advanced sustainable mobility systems in urban areas, particularly in dense cities where mobility, comfort and safety needs are more important than in other types of cities. In this project, we will focus on the contribution of advanced systems of perception, communication and control for the realization of intelligent transport systems capable of gradually integrating into the urban landscape. These systems require the development of advanced dedicated urban infrastructures as well as the development and integration of on-board intelligence in individual vehicles or mass transport.
