National Initiatives


  • Title: Coopération Conducteur-Véhicule Automatisé

  • Instrument: ANR

  • Duration: November 2013 - April 2017

  • Coordinator: Jean-Christophe Popieul (LAMIH - University of Valenciennes)

  • Partners: LAMIH, IFSTTAR, Inria, University of Caen, COMETE, PSA, CONTINENTAL, VALEO, AKKA Technologies, SPIROPS

  • Inria contact: Fawzi Nashashibi

  • Abstract: CoCoVeA project aims at demonstrating the need to integrate from the design of the system, the problem of interaction with the driver in resolving the problems of sharing the driving process and the degree of freedom, authority, level of automation, prioritizing information and managing the operation of the various systems. This approach requires the ability to know at any moment the state of the driver, the driving situation in which he finds himself, the operating limits of the various assistance systems and from these data, a decision regarding activation or not the arbitration system and the level of response.

  • Title: Redistribution automatique d’une flotte de véhicules en partage et valet de parking

  • Instrument: ANR

  • Duration: January 2016 - December 2018

  • Coordinator: Fawzi Nashashibi

  • Partners: Inria, Ecole Centrale de Nantes (IRCCyN), AKKA Technologies

  • Inria contact: Fawzi Nashashibi

  • Abstract: The VALET project proposes a novel approach for solving car-sharing vehicles redistribution problem using vehicle platoons guided by professional drivers. An optimal routing algorithm is in charge of defining platoons drivers’ routes to the parking areas where the followers are parked in a complete automated mode. The main idea of VALET is to retrieve vehicles parked randomly on the urban parking network by users. These parking spaces may be in electric charging stations, parking for car sharing vehicles or in regular parking places. Once the vehicles are collected and guided in a platooning mode, the objective is then to guide them to their allocated parking area or to their respective parking lots. Then each vehicle is assigned a parking place into which it has to park in an automated mode.


  • Title: Système Intégré Numérique pour les Transports Intelligents Coopératifs

  • Instrument: FUI

  • Duration: December 2014 - May 2017

  • Coordinator: Thomas Nguyen (Oktal)

  • Partners: Oktal, ALL4TEC, CIVITEC, Dynalogic, Inria, EURECOM, Renault, Armines, IFSTTAR, VEDECOM

  • Inria contact: Jean-Marc Lasgouttes

  • Abstract: The purpose of the project SINETIC is to create a complete simulation environment for designing cooperative intelligent transport systems with two levels of granularity: the system level, integrating all the components of the system (vehicles, infrastructure management centers, etc.) and its realities (terrain, traffic, etc.) and the component-level, modeling the characteristics and behavior of the individual components (vehicles, sensors, communications and positioning systems, etc.) on limited geographical areas, but described in detail.

  • Title: Perception augmentée par coopération véhicule avec l'infrastructure routière

  • Instrument: FUI

  • Duration: September 2016 - August 2019

  • Coordinator: SIGNATURE Group (SVMS)


  • Inria contact: Raoul de Charette

  • Abstract: The objective of the project is to integrate two technologies currently being deployed in order to significantly increase the time for an automated vehicle to evolve autonomously on European road networks. It is the integration of technologies for the detection of fixed and mobile objects such as radars, lidars, cameras ... etc. And local telecommunication technologies for the development of ad hoc local networks as used in cooperative systems.

Competitivity Clusters

RITS team is a very active partner in the competitivity clusters, especially MOV'EO and System@tic. We are involved in several technical committees like the DAS SUR of MOV'EO for example.

RITS is also the main Inria contributor in the VEDECOM institute (IEED). VEDECOM is financing the PhD theses of Mr. Fernando Garrido and Mr. Zayed Alsayed.
