* Research topics
I am Chargé de Recherche with the BIP project. My interest mainly lies in software architectures for process control, especially for robotic and embedded real-time systems. We are developing ORCCAD, a software environment aimed to design, verify, simulate and generate real-time code for complex robotic applications. You can find here a brief presentation and current state of Orccad.

Among the various aspects of real-time, one of prime interest is the scheduling policy used to implement the closed-loop control laws, which are mainly periodic. Feedback scheduling is an emerging scheduling method, where the scheduling parameters, such as the tasks period, is adapted on-line according to an application-dependent criterion. In particular, it is expected that this method will be efficient to schedule systems with timely uncertain repetitive behaviour, e.g., in visual servoing. Two sources of information about this subject are Lund Institute of Technology and University of Virginia.

My favorite application field is Underwater Robotics which lead to several collaborative projects with the Subsea Robotics laboratory at Ifremer. I am working with several other teams at INRIA like the Service robotique in Grenoble, Ostre in Rocquencourt and Mistral and Meije in Sophia. Also, I have a collaboration with Crim in Montréal.

Here are selected publications and my cv.

Any question?

* Educational Background
I graduated as Ingénieur from Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Mécanique et Microtechniques , Besançon (1976) and as Docteur-Ingénieur from Université de Franche-Comté with the L.A.B. (1980). I graduated in 1998 for the "Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches" at Université de Nice Sophia-Antipolis.
