Building a Consortium Around OpenViBE

Jean-Michel Prima (*) - 14/05/2018

Born at Inria research center, in Rennes, Brittany, France, over a decade ago, OpenViBE is one of the world's leading software platforms for processing EEG signals, designing Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) and conducting research in real-time neuroscience. As the tool has gained maturity and now caters to a vast community of users, Inria plans to open its management to external parties through a non-profit consortium. The move will enable to pool resources, fund dedicated engineering staff and thus guarantee OpenViBE's viability in the long haul.

Automatically Dissecting Android Malware

Jean-Michel Prima - 30/04/2018

The Android galaxy is plagued with a host of fake apps solely devised to rob smartphone users of their ID, their data or their money. Studying this type of infection vector, a group of French scientists is coming up with a string of innovative test and visualization tools meant to help security analysts investigate suspicious software, explore its inner-structure, force sleeping code out of dormancy and produce an intuitive graph representation of what the malware is really up to.

Perfecting shooting in basketball

Jean-Michel Prima (*) - 27/04/2018

For the past fifteen years or so, scientists have combined biomechanical analysis and virtual reality in an attempt to study sporting skills and to design new training tools geared towards improving player performance. In Rennes, this is one of the specialist areas of the Mouvement Sport Santé (M2S) laboratory, whose Inria team MimeTIC have entered into a collaboration with the Institut des Sciences du Mouvement Etienne-Jules Marey (UMR 7287), based in Marseille. The goal is to develop a viable market-ready tool for perfecting shooting in basketball. It is worth noting that this project is jointly funded by Inria and STAR, both members of the Instituts Carnot network.

Verifying integration of heterogeneous factory components

Jean-Michel Prima - 25/04/2018

In an automated factory, each equipment or machinery must meet a myriad of constraints. Ensuring that an entire factory chain satisfies these constraints and safety and security regulations requires simulation, test and verification. However, what can be proved when two heterogeneous components, e.g. mechanics and software, interact with each other? How can one prove that this hybrid aggregate also meets common, global, requirements such as, e.g. latency? Such is the question at the crux of a collaboration between Inria and Mitsubishi Electric R&D Centre Europe, two entities located on the same campus, in Rennes, Brittany, France.

Neurofeedback: Mensia - the start-up marketing a treatment for attention deficit disorders

Aline Brillu (*) - 12/03/2018

Mensia, a start-up that began life within Inria, are aiming to treat issues relating to attention span and hyperactivity in children using neurofeedback. The Koala module is already available to patients. Using OpenViBE technology, and developed by the Hybrid team at Inria, it is the first medical device to use a brain-machine interface that can be deployed at home.

Helping Robots Gently Navigate Through Thick Crowds

Jean-Michel Prima (*) - 19/02/2018

With the advance of robotics, a variety of service bots will soon be trundling and treading the public spaces among people going about their daily occupations. Making navigation through human tides safe and smooth is the purpose of Crowdbot, a European consortium led by Inria and funded by the EU ICT H2020 program. As project coordinator Julien Pettré points out, this research places a strong emphasis on ethics.

An image analysis service for agriculture

Jean-Michel Prima (*) - 1/12/2017

Are the apricots ripe? Are insects threatening the squash? Have all the cows had their share of fodder? All questions that require the farmer or rancher to make rounds. The fruit of research into robotic vision at the Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique centre, one startup, Dilepix, is getting ready to offer an online image analysis service to automate monitoring and help save valuable time.
