LARSEN Research team

Lifelong Autonomy and interaction skills for Robots in a Sensing ENvironment

  • Leader : Francois Charpillet
  • Type : team
  • Research center(s) : Nancy
  • Field : Perception, Cognition and Interaction
  • Theme : Robotics and Smart environments
  • Inria teams are typically groups of researchers working on the definition of a common project, and objectives, with the goal to arrive at the creation of a project-team. Such project-teams may include other partners (universities or research institutions)

Team presentation

Our vision is to have robots outside of the research labs and manufacturing industries. To

reach this goal, the team LARSEN is developing methods to endow robots with long-term

autonomy and interaction skills, taking into account the embedded and/or external sensors

in the environment. These skills are grounded on physical and social interaction, machine

learning, and planning under uncertainty. Experiments, especially in service and assistive

robotics, are at the core of our methodology. Our techniques will potentially impact all the

robotics elds and catalyze the ongoing eorts to transfer robots into our society.
