Advanced Testing of Driver Decoy Workshop, 14-15.09.2017

The Advanced Testing of Driver Decoy workshop took place at ŠKODA Auto, Mladá Boleslav, Czech Republic on 14-15.09.2017. The first day was dedicated to the lectures and discussions between the ESRs on the following topics:

  • Research activity at ŠKODA Auto;
  • Human-machine interface;
  • Experimental results from testing road surface characteristics;
  • Driver distraction detection and evaluation methodology.

On the second day, the driver-in-the-loop experiment on driver distraction induced by the in-vehicle information system was held. Apart from the experiment, the ITEAM fellows used an opportunity to visit ŠKODA Auto museum and vehicle manufacturing facilities.

VIF Workshop, 07.07.2017

The workshop took place at UT Compiègne, France on 07.07.2017 under the supervision of Dr. Michael Stolz (ViF). Each ESR held a 20 min. presentation  with the aim of introducing the participants to the specific ESR’s research topic. This task avails the know-how sharing and research dissemination not only among the ITEAM fellows but also towards the external members that took part in the event. Particularly, the workshop dealt with the topics of ADAS sensors, path/trajectory planning, sensor fusion and signal processing, control and simulation, validation and testing.

Compiègne Summer School,  03.07.2017

The first ITEAM Summer School took place at UT Compiègne, France on 03-06.07.2017. The ITEAM consortium notes that many external members, among which graduate and PhD students from other France Universities, attended the Summer School. This proves the interest that the ITEAM project has been raising during the last year among the research community and certainly demonstrates the important contribution of the European research programmes, and in particular Marie Skło-dowska-Curie actions, to a new type of continuous, consecutive and dynamic learning environment. The consortium is also glad to announce that all external participants successfully completed the summer school and received an official certificate of attendance from the organizing university.

The course covered the following topics and practical applications:

Vehicle dynamics control and stabilization (Prof. Olivier Sename, Prof. Soheib Fergani)

  • Introduction to vehicle dynamics control
  • Linear Parameter Varying (LPV) systems: from modelling to control
  • Robust and LPV control of suspension systems
  • Robustness and H∞ control of MIMO Systems

Environment perception and navigation (Prof. Philippe Martinet, Dr. Christian Laugier)

The Summer School closed with a visit of the test facilities of the Laboratoire Heudiasyc

IEEE Student and Young Professional Congress Sarajevo 2016, 1.12.2016


The 2016 BIH IEEE Student and Young Professional Congress (IEEE SYPC BiH 2016) titled “Technology and Innovation for a brighter future” was focused on providing youth in Bosnia and Herzegovina an insight into the various possibilities and opportunities that exist in the world’s largest professional organization IEEE. Through a variety of technical and non-technical workshops, industry lectures from global experts, professional networking and social events, students and young professionals were able to create new contacts, erase ethnic boundaries and develop collaborative relationships with industry in Bosnia and Herzegovina and around the world.

Presenter: Zlatan Ajanović
