CEA LIST is a research and technology institute (more than 700 people) located near Paris and dedicated to the promotion on European Industry. Within CEA the robotics laboratory (more than 40 permanent researchers) has an expertise of more than 40 years, dedicated initially to the development of remote handling robot for hazardous environment. The laboratory now concentrates his researches on applications in the sector of industry. A major part of the research effort is dedicated to cooperative robotics: co-working and cobotics and more specifically on the conception of innovative robots for handling and manipulation applications. The backbone of the research activity relies on expertise in mechanics, control and supervision. Several recent technology transfers like exoskeleton Hercule V3 to the RB3D SME or the creation of Haption Spin off on haptic feedback devices, demonstrate the technological skills of the laboratory. The robotics lab involvement in research activities is illustrated by the number of publication made each year in international conferences and the number of PhD and post-doctorates involved in the activities of the lab.
Franck Geffard, Ph.D in Telerobotics 2000. He is project leader of TAO , an industrial generic multi-robots and multi-clients controller and involved in the technological transfer of this controller. His current research interests are exoskeletons control, intelligent co-working, intention detection and more generally force control.
Mathieu Grossard received a Ph.D in automation in 2008. He is doing research in mechatronics and automation, including design and control of smart actuators, modelling and control of compliant structures and advanced methodologies of robust control for robot manipulator, and control of nonlinear systems. He is also teaching identification and control of robot .
Max Da Silva Simoes obtained both his Electrical engineering and Automatics and Applied Informatics degrees in 1996. He has been working as consultant for more than 10 years in industry on embedded systems, with an expertise in real-time SW, in fields such as Automotive, Robotics, or Defence. During this period he practiced for 4 years system engineering, translating customers’ needs into systems requirements. Since 2008, he is now involved at CEA in activities linked with conception of ‘Safe’ controllers, supervision of remote handling with 3D models, and Control and modelling of robots .
Xavier Lamy, Phd in Robotics in 2011. He received a diploma in Engineering from Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan. He is currently involved in the design and control of cobot (collaborative robots) for industrial applications [3, 4].
