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
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
in Rocquencourt and Mistral and Meije in
Sophia. Also, I have a collaboration with Crim in
Here are selected publications and my cv.
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
