Laboratoire d'Ingénérie des Systèmes de Versailles

Research unit


The research conducted at LISV focuses on robotics, mechanics, automation and instrumentation. The Interactive Robotics team mainly studies interactive robotized systems intended for human assistance and service (handicap, silver economy). The Instrumentation and Modelling of Advanced systems and nanosystems team focuses on advanced systems (melding electronics, optics, mechanics and control). Thanks to those teams, the lab can control the chain in its entirety : modelling - simulation - conception - system command. This expertise allows LISV to be an important partner and active member of the VEDECOM ITE and several competitivity poles such as Mov'eo and AeroSpace Valley.
