Research at LAAS-CNRS
To anticipate the interdisciplinary challenges of emerging and future systems and services, LAAS-CNRS identified five strategic axes : Energy, Health/Environment, Space, Transport/Mobilities. They are based on the major disciplines that have been the hallmark of the laboratory since its inception: computer science, robotics, automatic control and micro and nano systems.
Within these disciplines, research at LAAS revolves around 6 scientific departments running 25 research teams, basic units of research at the laboratory
- ESE : Energy and Embedded Systems
- ISGE : Energy Management System Integration
- NEO : Nano-Engineering and integration of metal-Oxide-based nanostructures and their interfaces
- S4M: Smart Sensing and SystemS Monitoring
LAAS works on various types of systems: micro and nano systems, embedded systems, embedded systems, distributed large-scale systems, biological systems, mobile systems, autonomous systems and critical infrastructures, with application areas such as aeronautics, space, transport, energy, services, health, environment, telecommunications, manufacturing and defence.
