ISIR logoThe Institut des Système Intelligents et de Robotique (ISIR) a research centre at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC) which conducts crossdisciplinary research in complex mechanical systems, systems and control, and signal processing. It pursues the application of robotics and intelligent systems to biology, medicine, and neuroscience through fundamental and applied research. ISIR is associated with CNRS, or Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique. ISIR is a Unité Mixte de Recherche (UMR) where both teaching and research take place.

ISIR is made up with three different research teams. DOMEO project deals with the "Artificial Perception and Handicap" group and t The "Human and Humanoid Motion" group.

The "Artificial Perception and Handicap" group strives to study human being through its diverse communication modes, verbal (speech) or non verbal (gesture, expression, glance ...) and action modes. It also devotes some research to visual augmentation. Then, the "Human and Humanoid Motion" group deals with the problem of dynamic control of human-like systems. The investigated control methods are model-based and we address the simultaneous learning of these models and of the behaviors that they give rise to. This research tends to contribute to understanding of human motion, with applications to the analysis of pathological posture and movement to contribute to the rehabilitation robot design as well as the control of humanoid systems and virtual human manikins.


Role in DOMEO

ISIR’s roles in DOMEO-project are as follows:

  • To address the Human Robot Interaction (HRI) components of Kompaï and more precisely cognitive and memory assistances.
  • To address the evaluation of basic components of Kompaï for the user localization task (in an interaction context).
  • To interpret and to adapt the physical interaction between human and robuWALKER
