Current Academic projects

  • Souk: Social Observation of Human Kinetics. Project co-leader with G. Tredan. Souk is a multidisciplinary project to study spatial and social proximity interrelations. With G. Théraulaz (CRCA) and C. Sire (LPT). The main goal of Souk is to provide means to understand how collective behaviors arise, and how/what kind of information helps a group to optimize a task.
  • Clue: Cycle-based Laboratory of Urban Evolutions. Project co-leader with G. Tredan. Clue focuses on building a distributed and citizen-based system to capture bicycle moving patterns and atmospheric pollution. With J-F. Léon from Aerology lab, and the Maison du Vélo association.
  • Syscob, bio-inspired complex systems. Co-leader with G. Théraulaz (CRCA) . Syscob is leverages cross-disciplinary approaches for building intelligent swarms of drones.
  • Current Cooperative projects
