My research is mainly focused on Computer Vision and Image Processing for Robotic applications. I am particularly involved in Visual Servoing (VS), a closed-loop control scheme of robots using visual data as feedback. I am interested in the development of new dense visual features for VS. By opposition to geometrical features, a dense feature-based VS directly uses every image pixel.
I am also very passionate about unconventional cameras. Since my first postdoctoral position, I am studying the contributions of light field cameras for robotic applications. My interest for unconventional vision is not limited to omnidirectional and light field cameras, but it also includes sensors of different modalities such as infrared and polarized.
Here are the research projects in which I am or I was involved:
- 2015 – 2022: Mobilitech – Transport of the future. The Mobilitech platform is an initiative of the UTBM, within the framework of the project « UTBM 2020: European Engineering Campus » aiming at the establishment on the university campus of Montbéliard, a partnership technology platform in the field of transport and mobility (UTBM, CIAD laboratory)
- 2018 – 2021: MACPOLO – Multisensor-based ACtive Perception and mObile grasping in assisted Living envirOnments with a HSR robot. Toyota Partner Joint Research Project.
- 2016 – 2018: CHAIF – Caractérisation de la HAIe Foliaire. A research and development program of embedded vision technologies for ecological sustainable solutions of the vineyard (UBFC, Le2i laboratory)
- 2016 – 2017: Transept. Survey on the south facade of the Amiens cathedral transept (UPJV, MIS laboratory)
- 2012 – 2016: e-Cathédral. A 15-year multidisciplinary research and development program started in 2010. e-Cathédral leverages the latest digital technologies to preserve historical monuments, improve accessibility, and generate new knowledge on cultural heritage (UPJV, MIS laboratory)
