International Intelligent Vehicles Summer School

A Summer School on the Intelligent Vehicles subject will be held at the Université de Technologie de Compiègne (UTC), in Compiègne, France, next July, from 2nd to 7th, 2017. PhD students are mainly concerned but researchers and engineers in the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) domain are also welcome.

This week summer school, realized on the context of the Interdisciplinary Training Network in Multi-Actuated Ground Vehicles (ITEAM) - a Marie-Curie European project (, has the objective to study in a common forum the Automation problem related to modelling, estimation and control of vehicle dynamics to the Robotics problem related to on-boarded perception and navigation of robotic vehicles.

During this week we will receive at UTC PhD students, researchers and engineers working on ITS domain from Universities, Research Centres and Companies coming from several European countries.

Starting by reinforcing the knowledge of the Vehicle Dynamics, where the problem associated to the estimation of unmeasured variables/parameters is considered at the context of state observer techniques, it goes ahead by revisiting and understanding new methods and new trends on vehicle dynamics control and stabilization.

Having established the background of vehicle dynamics modelling and control, the second part is devoted to the autonomous navigation: perception, decision and control. After introducing main issues about environment perception, the bases and latest developments on vehicle autonomous navigation are stated, and considered on the sensor-based navigation framework.

In this context, the lectures will take in a common training framework: (i) Vehicle dynamics control and stabilization - a low-level layer near to the actuators; (ii) Robotic perception and vehicle navigation - a high-level layer near to the decisional navigation frame.
