The Computer Science and Systems Engineering Laboratory (U2IS) is developing research in the field of design and reliability of systems integrating autonomous decision-making processes with applications in intelligent transport, robotics, defense and energy. The laboratory brings together the research activities of the ENSTA ParisTech School in computer science, robotics, vision, embedded systems, signal and image processing and hybrid system design and analysis.
The laboratory is focusing on application-oriented research. Even if they can come from fundamental fields, the motivation of most of its work is to be able to be integrated in products (components, robotic systems, design or validation tools) that are evaluated finally by the industry and can give place to technology transfers.
The laboratory maintains close and privileged relations with numerous laboratories located on the Saclay area, in France and abroad. They can be informal, in the frame of collaborative projects or result in the creation of joint teams, as is the case with INRIA Saclay (Grace Project Team) and INRIA Bordeaux (Flowers Project Team).
