Séminaire Chaire Drive for All « Conduite autonome : entre modèle et apprentissage »

La chaire Drive for All est heureuse de vous inviter au séminaire “Conduite autonome : entre modèle et apprentissage”. Le séminaire aura lieu le mercredi 29 novembre à MINES ParisTech.

logoDriveForAll

Le séminaire est public et gratuit mais l’inscription est obligatoire https://goo.gl/forms/zTXI5ZFyr5yNN18f2

L’objectif de la journée est de donner des éléments de compréhension et les défis en cours concernant la conduite autonome.

Deux approches sont actuellement concurrentes : d’une part l’apprentissage (ou intelligence artificielle, souvent représentée par l’approche Deep Learning) qui est de nature probabiliste mais offre des performances étonnantes, et d’autre part les algorithmes déterministes, qui offrent plus de garanties mais sont souvent plus limités.

Workshop NIVAR 2017

Alexis Paljic (enseignant chercheur) est invité à présenter un article de recherche au workshop NIVAR 2017 – Natural human-computer Interaction and ecological perception in immersive Virtual and Augmented Reality.

Titre : Ecological Validity of Virtual Reality : Three Use Cases

Abstract : This paper is a discussion on the question of ecological validity of virtual reality in the light of three studies that we have done in previous works. These works are chosen as a basis for the discus- sion because they are all designed to assess validity using one method : the comparison of user perception and behavior between real and virtual environments. The first study explores visual perception of complex materials, the second studies the role of visual feedback on user gestures and object manipulation, the third is a study of virtual reality as a tool for assessing the acceptability of human robot collaboration in a car factory. We discuss our methodology, the limits of validity of VR in our three use cases and suggest future developments in VR to provide design tools for more valid VR environments.
Keywords : Virtual Reality, Ecological Valididy, Comparative Approach, Real vs. Virtual Comparison, Perception of Complex Materials, Manipulation Gestures, Human Robot Cooperation

Summer School Human Factors Aspects of Cooperative Systems Design

This 2-day event will consist of lectures and plenary talks given by international experts as well as senior researchers from  IMT or TUM. Two poster sessions will allow PhD students to present their work, and coffee breaks or the social event will facilitates discussions among participants.

 Summerschool-Human-Machine-Interaction_1090

Technological progress increasingly allows automated and cooperating systems. Cooperation and automation make a paradigm shift in the driver-vehicle interaction and also in the human-robot interaction. From the perspective of the ergonomics, great potentials that will be discussed among the concepts mobility 4.0 and 4.0 industry opens up with this development. However, the new distribution of roles between man and technology requires new approaches in the human-machine interaction, safety, comfort and efficiency in socio-technical systems to increase or maintain. Approaches for technical frameworks, interaction concepts, evaluation methods and metrics in the areas of robotics, automated vehicles and machinery will be discussed.

Future vehicles will be able to perform complex maneuvers independently, and also in cooperation with the drivers and neighboring vehicles. A similar development takes place in the field of cooperative robotics. The dilemma between safety and efficiency must be resolved for almost all applications. The user should be as well informed and motivated, looking ahead to save energy and avoid dangerous situations. In these highly cooperative cases the user must be not overwhelmed, the machine should not patronize the user, and rather increase the pleasure of interaction.

The aim of this Summer School is for young researchers and PhD students to present, discuss and exchange research approaches, methodologies and results on cooperative human-machine interactions, cross-domains, between PhD students as well as with senior researchers.

Abstract:

Cooperative Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are systems where the vehicles, the roadside infrastructure, central control centres and other elements exchange information to achieve better road safety, traffic efficiency and comfort of the road users. These cooperative elements share the information by organising Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET) or using the mobile network (e.g. 3G and LTE) and realises various cooperative ITS services. To promote wider deployment of such services, many stakeholders made consensus that the communication platform must be based on a common architecture and drive rapid international standardisation (e.g. ISO, ETSI, IEEE). In the near future, autonomous vehicles also benefit from such communication platforms by enforcing the perception, planing, and decision-making. However the most basic Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) messages standardized in Europe, US and Japan suffer from same issues such as 1) unable to receive messages from the object without V2V transmitter, 2) message loss because of obstacle and wireless range, 3) vulnerable for malfunctioning and malicious node. For the solution, we propose an infrastructure-assisted V2V messaging system to support cooperative autonomous driving. We design the system based on the ITS Station architecture standardized in ISO/ETSI, working with any vehicle sensing technology. Moreover, we implement the prototype roadside system with a stereo vision for the vehicle sensing. The prototype system is evaluated in a field test in the campus of the University of Tokyo. The results show that the proposed system significantly improves the coverage of V2V messaging while the system overhead is limited. The proposal is being integrated to our personal mobility autonomous vehicle system based on an open source software. We are also planning the contribution to the international standardization of the technique.
