Past and current projects

Research topics :

Fundamental research on:

  • Spatial Cognition
  • Human-Machine Interactions
  • Sensory Substitution
  • Sensorimotor theories of Perception

Applied to:

Design, implementation and evaluation of assistive devices for the Blind and Visually Impaired, combining Computer Vision algorithms, Sensor Fusion and Information & Communication Technologies.

Current projects :


International project aiming to develop an Electronic Orientation & Travel Aid for the autonomous navigation of VIP, based on Spatial Cognition models and Information & Communication Technologies.


Tactile interface to provide VIP access to art and paintings inside museums.

Get Involved

Get involved in our projects, or with our collaborators

Our projects are vast endeavours and involve fundamental research for the design of our assistive devices, electrical and software engineering for their implementation, and experimental studies for their evaluation.

Whether you are a researcher, an engineer, an industry, or simply if you wish to participate in our studies to contribute to their development, we always welcome new collaborators. So don’t hesitate to contact us !
