Cooperative vehicles potentially represent the new paradigm in road  
transportation.  Vehicle to vehicle (V2V) and vehicle to  
infrastructure (V2I) wireless communications links enable the sharing  
and aggregation of information and hence to extend the driver  
awareness horizon.

A new PhD position is immediately available at a French vehicle  
manufacturer in conjunction with a national research institute to look  
into the area of "Distributed Data Fusion and Reasoning for  
Cooperative Vehicle Applications", within the context of the CIFRE  
type of studentships.

The thesis should focus in the area of distributed data fusion under  
uncertainty and constraints for automobile related safety  
applications.  We are seeking students interested in the area  
cooperative systems, in particular, data fusion, control, learning and  
perception.  The position should provide the opportunity to develop  
the theoretical foundations at a leading laboratory and to validate  
ideas through experimentation using passenger vehicles as well as  

The enrolled student will benefit from ongoing work on cooperative  
vehicles as part of large European projects.
To submit an application: Please include your curriculum vitae, an  
academic transcript and the names and contact details of two referees.  
Applications can be sent immediately and will be considered until the  
position is filled.
