Transport and mobility: efficient and safe systems for smart and connected mobility

The ambition of this transverse application axis is to identify and make visible the activities of LAAS-CNRS in relation to transport and mobility (car, plane, train, etc.). It also aims to take advantage of the associated multidisciplinary skills to apply them to smart and connected mobile systems with the main objective of making them safer and more efficient. This application area involves researchers and teacher-researchers from 11 research teams in the laboratory.

The means of transport and mobility are evolving according to the needs of users and the development of society. New needs are emerging (safety of means of transport, security against malicious acts, ecology, etc.).

Thus, the development of these systems must comply with requirements related to :

  •     the environment
  •     human behaviour,
  •     risks,
  •     regulations and
  •     energy performance.

These requirements take the form of constraints to be taken into account in the choice of solutions and tools:

  •     means of communication,
  •     decision making,
  •     perception,
  •     data processing,
  •     instrumentation,
  •     technology choices.
