Modelling, Information and Systems (MIS)

Research unit - UR 4290


The MIS (Modelling, Information & Systems) research team brings
together UPJV lecturer-researchers in Computer Science, Automatic
Control, Robotics and Computer Vision.
The scientific objectives of the laboratory are in line with the themes of Information and Communication Science and Technology (ICST).
The main application areas include:
Flying and Vehicles, Cybersecurity, Electrical Energy, Robotics, Music,
Heritage, Health...

MIS research activity is structured around 4 research teams. It is
conducted by more 80 researchers including 58 lecturer-researchers,
35 PhD students and 4 administrative and technical staff, as well as on a valuable network of industrial and academic partners.

1. Distributed Systems, Words and Applications (SDMA) team: The SDMA team focuses on a comprehensive project, combining fundamental and applied aspects of IT research. This project extends from networks to distributed applications, models, algorithms and related controls.
The team is structured in two ways:
• Study of algorithmic models: parallelism models, such as the large grain data model; text algorithm, with applications to genomic or musical problems; distributed algorithms;
• Networks: addressing dynamicity, failure, coordination, memory and/or energy limitation, real-time management, and performance analysis.
The competence of the SDMA team with regard to these problems has already been demonstrated in the context of data sustainability, real-time QoS, temporary fault management, robot coordination or performance evaluation.
• Security: authentication protocols, data anonymization, secure storage

2. PR team (Robotic Perception): The PR team’s project focuses on improving the autonomy of mobile vehicles (on the ground, in space, virtually) through artificial perception. The approach to contribute to this problem consists in designing original sensors and methods to exploit them (image processing, vision, location, navigation algorithms).

3. Graphs, Optimization and Constraints (GOC) Team: The GOC team focuses on the areas of modeling, optimization, artificial learning for decision support, efficiency of resolution systems, cryptography and cryptanalysis. Mainly we find:
• modelling problems and information in the form of graphs or constraints;
• Development of decision support systems by various methods, complete or incomplete, accurate or approximated, or hybrid methods;
• implementation of proposed algorithms in a sequential and parallel framework;
• Information systems engineering.

4. Command and Vehicle Team (COVE):
• Control / Order
• Diagnostic, prognosis and process monitoring
• Smart networked control
• Vehicle dynamics and engine control
• Design and optimization of safety and eco-driving systems in self-driving vehicles
• Optimize and manage energy conversion systems for automotive, avionics and home automation applications
