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

"DFI" research theme

Décision et Fusion d’Informations

The theme Decision and information fusion (DFI) deals with problems of decision-making in an uncertain environment. The Bayesian model using additive probability measures is largely dominant.Over the past forty years, two other models have emerged: one is based on the possibility theory and the other on belief functions. Both models use non-additive measures. Within the laboratory, members are specialized in belief functions. Research is both theoretical and practical. In order to use these skills to the best, and to develop as much as possible, applications are varied and not restricted to a specific domain.

The skills of the members deal with all aspects of decision support when belief functions are used to represent and manipulate uncertainty. In particular, the members publish on the following subjects:

  • classification, pattern recognition, analysis or extraction of data,
  • diagnosis, inference, decision making and reasoning,
  • the estimation and modeling of the reliability or credibility of a data source,
  • data fusion as such, when multiple information sources or multiple sensors must be aggregated to obtain a global state.

GS2RI (ELSAT 2020)

2015 - 2020

Greener and Safer Rail Road Interaction

Summary :

L’objet du projet PSCHITT_Rail est de réaliser la co-simulation ferroviaire dans un réseau urbain entre des tramways d’une part, et des véhicules et piétons d’autre part, dans le but d’améliorer la sécurité des usagers.

SmartMOB (ELSAT 2020)

2015 - 2020

Smart Mobility

Summary :

The first purpose of the SmartMOB (Smart MOBility) project is to encourage drivers to park their cars to continue their trips using public transport to save time, facilitate their trips, save money, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions...


2015 - 2020

Vers Une MObilité Propre et Efficace

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).
