LAAS is a laboratory of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS). Its research activities fall within the domain of Information Sciences and Technologies. and address complex systems (artificial and sometimes natural) generally heterogeneous, and at different scales, to devise theories, methodologies and tools for modeling, designing and controlling them.
The lab has a history of strong relationships with industry and works in a large number of collaborative projects with international, national and regional industries of all size. LAAS was one of the 20 first “Carnot Institutes” labeled in 2006. The systems considered in its research are of different kinds: integrated systems, embedded systems with real time and safety requirements, distributed systems, mobile systems, autonomous and robotics systems, micro and nano systems, biological systems.
They fall in various application domains such as aeronautics and space, telecommunications, transports, production, services, security and defense, energy management, healthcare, environment and sustainable development.
