ARMEN - Autonomous Robots and Control of Interactions with the Environment
The creation of the ARMEN team comes from the desire to create original research in the field of autonomous robotics and the control of interactions with the environment. Designing and mastering systems capable of addressing both sides of the term "environment" ((i) in the sense of the environment in which the robot operates or (ii) in the ecological sense of the term) are two of the team's priority objectives.
The main challenges concern the gain in accuracy and speed for a given environment, the gain in autonomy and the minimization of environmental impact. The team's objective is to develop scientific tools and methods to meet these challenges and to prove their effectiveness on demonstrators in real environments.
The origin of this team is the gathering of mechanical researchers with control researchers specialized in sensor-based control and perception. The aim is to define new research resulting from this association around three themes: Environments-based design, Interaction with the environment, and Perception of the environment.
Our Scientific topics are :
- Mastery of dynamic systems,
- Evolution in large environments,
- Eco-design of robots,
- Mastery of deformable systems.
