Bilateral Contracts with Industry

VALEO Group: a very strong partnership is under reinforcement between VALEO and Inria. Several bilateral contracts were signed to conduct joint works on Driving Assistance, some of which VALEO is funding. This joint research includes:

  • The PhD thesis of Pierre de Beaucorps and the post-doc of Thomas Streubel under the framework of VALEO project “Daring”

  • SMART project: on the Design and development of multisensor fusion system for road vehicles detection and tracking. This project funds the internship of Alfredo Valle.

  • A CIFRE like PhD thesis is ongoing between VALEO and Inria (Maximilian JARITZ), dealing with multisensor processing and learning techniques for free navigable road detection.

  • VALEO is currently a major financing partner of the “GAT” international Chaire/JointLab in which Inria is a partner. The other partners are: UC Berkeley, Shanghai Jiao-Tong University, EPFL, IFSTTAR, MPSA (Peugeot-Citroën) and SAFRAN.

  • Technology transfer is also a major collaboration topic between RITS and VALEO as well as the development of a road automated prototype.

  • Finally, Inria and VALEO are partners of the PIA French project CAMPUS ( Connected Automated Mobility Platform for Urban Sustainability) including SAFRAN, Invia and Gemalto. The aim of the project is the development of autonomous vehicles and the realization of two canonical uses-cases on highways and urban like environments.

Renault Group: Collaboration between Renault and RITS re-started in 2016. Different research teams in Renault are now working separately with RITS on different topics.

  • A CIFRE like PhD thesis is ongoing between Renault and Inria (Farouk GHALLABI) The thesis deals with the accurate localization of an autonomous vehicle on a highway using mainly on-board low-cost perception sensors.

  • Another CIFRE PhD thesis begun on November 2017 (Imane MATHOUT).

AKKA Technologies: Collaboration with AKKA since 2012 (for the Link & Go prototype).

  • Inria and AKKA Technologies are partners in the COCOVEA and the VALET projects (ANR projects).

  • A new CIFRE PhD thesis (Luis ROLDAO JIMENEZ) dealing with 3D-environment modeling for autonomous vehicles begun in October 2017.
