    IMMEMO (IMMersion 3D basée sur l'interaction ÉMOtionnelle)

    In collaboration with an industrial partner who develops a 3D immersion system consisting of a network of synchronized cameras, display screens, software to capture the movement of a person in a restricted environment and to synthesize in real time A clone of the person immersed in the virtual world. This industrial research project aims at designing an extension module enabling this platform to capture and recognize facial expressions of the immersed person (learner) in order to facilitate his interaction with an autonomous conversational agent whose behavior will adapt Semi-automatically to that of the learner.

    Investissement d'Avenir A1:1 – Interaction avec les avatars à taille humaine

    The objective of this project is to allow an interaction between a human and a virtual agent of human size, in a cultural place (the Historial of the Vendée), including dimensions of verbal and non-verbal communication. The avatar plays the role of guide who asks visitors about the museums in order to acquire new knowledge. To interact properly with visitors to the museum, the virtual agent must have communication skills to interpret the verbal and non-verbal cues of the users.

    IRQN (Images Qualité du Réseau routier National)

    Each year, as part of Operation IQRN, Images Qualité of the National Road Network, one third of the national roads are evaluated in order to determine the quality of the pavement and plan the necessary repairs. The manner of detecting cracks was based on a manual survey by qualified persons (lifters). This task is dangerous for the lifters, tedious, little repeatable, ineffective. This project involves the automation of pavement degradation surveys.
