Inria Project Lab


Participants : Valeria Loscri, Abdoul Aziz Mbacke, Nathalie Mitton [correspondant] .

  • Title: CityLab@Inria

  • Type: IPL

  • Duration: 2015 - 2019

  • Coordinator: Valerie Issarny

  • CityLab@Inria studies ICT solutions toward smart cities that promote both social and environmental sustainability. A strong emphasis of the Lab is on the undertaking of a multi-disciplinary research program through the integration of relevant scientific and technology studies, from sensing up to analytics and advanced applications, so as to actually enact the foreseen smart city Systems of Systems. Obviously, running urban-scale experiments is a central concern of the Lab, so that we are able to confront proposed approaches to actual settings. The Lab's research leverages relevant effort within Inria project-teams that is further revisited as well as integrated to meet the challenges of smart cities. Research themes span: energy-efficient wireless communication protocols, urban-scale social and physical sensing, privacy by design, cloud-based urban data management, data assimilation, visual analysis, and urban system software engineering. In addition, CityLab Inria research builds upon collaborative effort at the International level, and especially collaboration in the context of the Inria SiliconValley program. This project has yield to the set up of a full course on Smart Cities via a MOOC [48] and a set of publications [18], [29], [28], [37], [11].

  • Title: Future Internet of Things

  • Type: EquipEx

  • Duration: March 2010 - December 2019

  • Coordinator: UPMC

  • Abstract: FIT (Future Internet of Things) aims to develop an experimental facility, a federated and competitive infrastructure with international visibility and a broad panel of customers. It will provide this facility with a set of complementary components that enable experimentation on innovative services for academic and industrial users. The project will give French Internet stakeholders a means to experiment on mobile wireless communications at the network and application layers thereby accelerating the design of advanced networking technologies for the Future Internet. FIT is one of 52 winning projects from the first wave of the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research's “Equipements d'Excellence” (Equipex) research grant program. Coordinated by Professor Serge Fdida of UPMC Sorbonne Universités and running over a nine-year period, the project will benefit from a 5.8 million euro grant from the French government.
