On-going projects

  • 2023-2024  | This project, officially granted in July 2023, is funded by the Ministry of Science and Technology of China to host high-level foreign experts. As part of this program, I conduct seminars/lectures and engage in meetings with Ph.D. students. Chinese contact: Dr. Zhenhua WANG, School of Aeronautics, Harbin Institute of Technology (zhenhua.wang@hit.edu.cn).

  • 2019-2023 |  COCOTIER project: see at here.

Some past projects

  • 2017-2021 | Coordinator of “Safety and reliability of distributed engineered systems” project, cluster of excellence SysNum (bringing together researchers in Computer Science and Control & System theory).
  • 2014-2016 | Coordinator of a collaborative project on “model-based fault detection and diagnosis of abnormal aircraft control surfaces” with Airbus.
  • 2014-2015 | Coordinator of a CONACyT (Mexico) – CNRS (France) consortium: Control and estimation by sliding modes.
  • 2014-2015 | Creator of EASIERFLY consortium: 5 countries (France, Germany, NL, Italy and GB).
  •  2011-2015 | Responsible for IMS-lab of the French ANR MAGIC-SPS project. The project was a basic research on set membership techniques for estimation and monitoring of LPV/LTV and hybrid systems.
  • 2007-2011 | Coordinator of SIRASAS project (in French): Cross-domain project on spacecraft autonomy. 9 industrial and academic partners. Supported by the French Foundation for Research in Aeronautics and Space, Airbus and Thales Alenia Space. Budget: 2.21M€.
  • During this project, fault management issues during the Rendez-Vous phase of a Mars Sample Return mission have been investigated. See MSR_RendezVous.
