Scientific Conference SMIV

The annual SMIV conference is the opportunity for the VEDECOM Institute, together with its international academic partners, to present the latest research findings on sustainable mobility and the technical and scientific challenges which remain to be met, both in the field of electrification and connectivity of vehicles.

The approach of VEDECOM consists of starting with normal usage practice, so that the technology remains at the service of the human. The economic impacts and political challenges of these new technologies are also addressed.

Session 1
“Sustainable and electric mobility”
This first session employs an economic as well as a user-centric perspective to electric and eco mobility. The topics range from electric vehicles and vehicle-to-grid services to new mobility services, notably in the form of carsharing, carpooling and autonomous vehicles.
Rick WOLBERTUS from Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences / TU Delft will present his work on the effect of local policies on the charging behaviour of electric vehicles and the purchase intention of electric vehicles.
Icaro FREITAS, from VEDECOM, and Dirk Lauinger, from EPLF and VEDECOM, will talk about electro-mobility and V2G services.
Rémy LE BOENNEC, PhD at VEDECOM in economy, will discuss carpooling and carsharing issues in the Paris region.
Ramteen SIOSHANSI, our first keynote, will provide an introduction to electric mobility issues in the energy transition context
Session 2
“The intelligent vehicle and its collaboration with the infrastructure”

This session is intended to present the latest research findings in matters of functionalities of the intelligent vehicle in its environment. This will address extended-perception functions, which rely on roadside units to enable better vehicle location.

In addition to the algorithmic approaches, Raphael DAVID, Strategic Program Manager at CEA in the field of the design of embedded systems for the automobile sector, will present the latest developments in implementation electronic architecture within connected vehicles.

To travel in complete safety in an environment that interacts with numerous actors (both users of the vehicle and other road users), the autonomous vehicle must be able to clearly communicate its intentions, for example using a human/machine interface.

Natacha METAYER, of VEDECOM, will present her work, arising from cognitive ergonomics, on the study of the interaction between vulnerable users and autonomous communicating vehicle, equipped with an external communicating human/machine interface.
Nassima FRISSA, autonomous vehicle infrastructure engineer at VEDECOM, will explain her work on connected infrastructure.
