Ongoing and past projects

European project OPEVA (OPtimization of Electric Vehicle Autonomy)

Objectives: he project aims for innovation on aggregating information from the vehicle, not only from the battery but also from other internal sensors and behaviours, to create a model of performance and consumption specific to the individual vehicle and its driver. It aims to optimize the individual driving episode using the out-vehicle data such as state of the road, weather, charging station location and occupancy etc. that are collated from the back-end systems. OPEVA will further address the challenges associated with the communication between the vehicle and the infrastructure to gather data from the back-end system.

Some data: 40 partners from France, Italy, Austria, Belgium, Germany, Portugal, Turkey, Poland, Swizerland and Czechia, Start date:  01/2023, Duration: 36 months

ANR/FNR 5G-INSIGHT (Intelligent orchestrated security and privacy-aware slicing for 5G and beyond vehicular networks)

Objectives: 5G-INSIGHT aims to build novel security mechanisms ranging from attack detection to attack mitigation leveraging novel tools and paradigms such as those based on Machine-Learning (ML), particularly federated and deep learning, to Blockchains and Deception Security, all while considering the specific but very sensitive (in terms of security) case of cross-border areas (i.e., the France-Luxembourg border-crossing case). 

Some data: 5 partners in France and Luxembourg, Start date:  04/2021, Duration: 42 months

SIMVA project

The SIMVA project is interested in studying the acceptability of autonomous vehicles by elderly people in rural areas and the effect of virtual assistants. The project is based on advanced technological solutions and is accompanied by experts in the field of psychology and accompaniment of the elderly.

Some data: 4 partners in France (DRIVE, DAVI Psy-Drepi, and PNM), Start date:  10/2021, Duration: 24 months

Visio3D+ project

The Visio3D+ project aims to develop a 360° system for tele-relationships that reinvent and enrich remote relations by moving them from 2D to 3D, for collaborations of 3 to several hundred participants. Around the use case of “e-learning” in front of a hundred students, which can then be adapted to other use cases such as prevention against isolation and a project meeting with 10 peers.

Some data: 3 partners (DRIVE, Immertech and DAVi, Start date: 10/2022, Duration : 36 months.

FUI Project PARFAIT (Personal dAta pRotection FrAmework for IoT)

Objectives: Interoperability, along with security and privacy of personal data, are the two most important limitations for the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) market. Interoperability increases the complexity of service production processes and the cost of production. Lack of security and trust for the protection of privacy puts a barrier between service providers and consumers. To solve these issues, PARFAIT aims to develop a platform for protecting personal data in IoT applications and to reduce the complexity of integrating and deploying services in today’s IoT technology by providing interoperable software libraries, tools and SDK elements.

Some data: 25 partners, Start date:  01/2018, Duration: 36 months
French partners: NXP Semiconductors, Deveryware, Gemalto, Pertimm, Softeam Cadextan, Université de Bourgogne (UB), Université de La Rochelle (ULR).

European project ITEA FUSE-IT (Future Unified System for Energy and Information Technology)

Project objectives: Fuse-IT will address the need of sustainable, reliable, user-friendly, efficient, safe and secure Building Management System (BMS) in the context of Smart Critical Sites. It is the sole initiative addressing Sustainability and Security & Safety challenges from a site management perspective. It will benefit to both challenges by solving the dilemma between efficiency and security in intelligent buildings.

Some data: 25 partners, Start date:  10/2014, Duration: 36 months
French partners : Cassidian CyberSecurity (CCS) – Leader, Thales Research & Technology (TRT), Thales Systems (TS), SOGETI HIGHTECH (SOGETI), ARC Informatique (ARC), VTREEM, EISIS, CEA LIST (CEA), Institut Mines-Télécom (IMT-TSP), Université de Bourgogne (UB),Université de La Rochelle (ULR), Institut Catholique des Arts et Métiers de Nantes (ICAM).
