Laboratoire de Génie Informatique et d’Automatique de l’Artois

"DFI" research theme

Décision et Fusion d’Informations

The Decision and Information Fusion theme (DFI) deals with decision support problems in the presence of imperfect information (meaning imprecise, uncertain, incomplete, ...) The main tool used is the Dempster-Shafer theory of belief functions, which extends the probability theory by representing the degrees of belief by non-additive measures. This framework allows one to model more precisely reasoning and decision making in situations where the available information is imperfect.

The research projects concern both theoretical research, for example:

  • Information fusion, classification,
  • Decision making and reasoning,
  • Estimation and modeling of the reliability of an information source,
  • Multi-agent simulation

And practical researches, as for example in the fields of transport and diagnosis of electric motors.

Summary :

L’objectif de ce projet est de repenser les recherches sur l’amélioration des performances des véhicules en intégrant la complexité des usages, par exemples les comportements des conducteurs.


2014 - 2017

Sûreté de fonctionnement et résilience pour la gestion et le contrôle coopératifs des systèmes sociotechniques

Summary :

L’objectif principal de ce projet est le développement d’outils méthodologiques pour la gestion et le contrôle de situations de crises en termes de résilience. Les systèmes considérés sont des systèmes sociotechniques tels que la coopération entre opérateurs humains et robots mobiles de type UGV (Unmanned Ground Vehicles) en milieu hostile (incendie, inondations, etc.).


2012 - 2015

New Integrated Smart Transport Options

Summary :

The objective of this project is the creation of a transnational evaluation tool for alternative mobility projects that will take into account the following elements: Mobility (efficiency, travel time ...), economic development, quality environmental protection, safety and consumer satisfaction.

PlaiiMob (CISIT)

2007 - 2013

Plate-forme de simulation dédiée aux services de MOBilité

Summary :

The objective of this project is to illustrate how partial information can be exchanged in the context of inter-vehicle communication, for example to warn the driver of a potentially dangerous event (accident, obstacles on the road, braking, ...) or to assist him/her (find a free parking space, avoid traffic jams, be informed in real time of traffic conditions).
