of Canada and the Agence nationale de la recherche in France,  (2011-2015) (Livic-IFSTTAR, Evry,

private firms)


Title: “Vehicle Tracking and Accident Diagnostic System”, project funded by NSERC in Canada pand

PROMPT Quebec, (2013-2017) (ETS, private firm).


Title: “Real-time multiple collaborative intelligent vehicles simulator for autonomous/semi-

autonomous driving applications”, funded by MITACS, Industry Canada, FRQNT and Opal-RT,  (2013-

2017) (Livic, private firm) 

My international collaborations 

Canada: through the Network of Centres of excellence (NCE) AUTO21 (University of Toronto, University

of Waterloo, Université Laval)

France: I am mainly collaborating with the IFSTTAR (LIVIC and LEMCO laboratories), University d’Orsay

Paris-Sud, Université Évry val d’Essonne, École des Mines de Paris (Mines-Paritech) (LARA), INRIA (IMARA

project), UTC Compiègne.

USA: mainly in California through the CCSIP (Canada-California Strategic Innovation Partnership)

program. My main partners there are: University Berkeley (PATH), Stanford (CARS Laboratory), UC

Riverside and CalPoly. I have also some contacts with Clemson University at Greenville in South Carolina

and the University of Florida in Fort Lauderdale.

Australia: My main connections there are with the CARRS (Centre for Accident Research & Road Safety)

at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, and with the ACFR lab at the University

of Sydney.

Japan: Having lived in Japan almost two years, working at NICT in Tokyo in 1989 and 1990, I have kept

collaborators there, the main one being a close friend who is now working as professor at the University

of Nigata in the department of Information Engineering.

Welcome on this page dedicated to my

research activities

My research interests

my research interests lie mainly in the areas of information

processing, information theory, data fusion, artificial intelligence,

modeling sources of information and uncertainties, modeling and

study and analysis of complex embedded systems, and decision

making processes. I apply these mathematical tools mainly in the

automotive sector and in intelligent transportation systems (ITS).

Along the years, I have worked mainly in three distinct appplication

fields: optics and photonics, biomedical and the the most important,

automotive/road transportation, in particular the different aspects

related to intelligent vehicles.  In this last sector, I ans ce dernier

secteur d’application, je concentre mes efforts de recherche dans les 

sujets suivants:

Algorithmes et mconcentrate my efforts in the following research


Active safety systems;

Autonomous driving;

VANETS and wireless inter-vehicular communications;

Multi-sensor data fusion applied to vehicle positionning and localization;

Multi-sensor data fusion for perception, map building, objects detection and tracking for intelligent vehicles


Modeling and propagation analysis of information and uncertainties through embedded complex systems; 

Real time decision making processes  embedded in intelligent vehicles;

Risk and reliability analysis Éin vehicular embedded decision making processes.

The LIV laboratory at UdeS 

My team of students has expanded greatly in the last few years, which has justified the fondation of a

laboratory called LIV (Laboratory on Intelligent Vehicles). The mission of the lab is:

- to gather the research activities and provide a coherent research program;

- to stimulate exchanges between members of the team and facilitate links with the outside world;

- to provide a cohesive and strong identity among the members of the team;

- to facilitate the obtention of research grants and the development of collaborations

- to provide a better visibility to the member of the team and to their work.
