Le comité RoboCup France
Les membres du comité sont les principaux contributeurs à l'organisation de la RoboCup en France.
La RoboCup est certes une compétition, mais c'est avant tout une communauté, nationale et internationale. Une communauté faite d'échanges d'idées, de technologies et de personnes.
Tout au long de l'année, divers événements RoboCup ont lieu au plan régional, national, continental et international.
Membres du Comité
Olivier Ly - Chair
Professor at Bordeaux University - LaBRI, IUT. After the Agrégation of Mathematics, Olivier Ly got its PhD from University of Bordeaux in Computer Science. Then he worked in the Schlumberger compagny for 3 years as a researcher. At this time, his research was focused on topology, language theory and security. Then he moved to Bordeaux University where he founded the Rhoban team, focused on embedded systems and robotics. He has been involved into several projects (national and european), he supervised 7 PhD thesis.
He participates to RoboCup since 2011. His team Rhoban has won the kid-size league two times (2016 and 2017), and got the Best humanoid price (2017).
Let us mention that members of Rhoban are involved in the organisation of humanoid league: Agnès Passault in the organisation committee 2016, and Ludovic Hofer in the technical committee since 2017. Grégoire Passault and he organised the 5th International School for Humanoid Soccer Robots in Bordeaux in december 2017. He is one of the founding members of the FFROB.
Olivier is the co-chair of RoboCup Bordeaux 2020 organisation committee.
Dominique Duhaut received his PhD degree in computer science from the University Paris 6 in 1982 on « The study of complexity of recursive function under the definition of Trahtenbrot».In 1996, he was participating to the definition of the RoboCup movement that he organised in Paris in 1998. He has been trustee from 1997 to 2002. At that time his research was focused on multi-agents programming in robotics. He moved in university of Bretagne Sud in 2000 where he became professor. His research interests are actually on self reconfigurable systems, teams of robot programming and social aspect of robots. He is also interested in science promotion for young people. He his organising competitions for schools since several years and is participating in the RoboFesta movement.
Dominique is the chair of RoboCup Bordeaux 2020 organisation committee.
Pierre BLAZEVIC entered the Ecole Normale Paris-Saclay (ENSET) in 1982 and passed the agrégation of applied physics in 1985. He received his master degree in robotics (DEA) from University Pierre & Marie Curie (UPMC) with « automatisation of a MIKE spectrometer ». In 1991 is received his PhD in Robotics from University Paris Pierre & Marie Curie (UPMC) with «Design of an integrated actuator » in the LRP, laboratoire de Robotique de Paris. In 2000 he passed the Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches in University of Versailles. He is professor in University of Versailles since 2000 where he is the dean of the school of engineering since 2009. He participated in the RoboCup competition for more than 10 years with AIBO Robots from Sony and Nao Robots from Aldebaran. His team « les 3 mousquetaires » won the Standard league competition in Stockholm in 1999 with AIBO robots. His reseach is mainly related to locomotion and control of mobile robots. He supervised several PhD thesis covering 6 legged, 4 legged, humanoïd and snakes robots. He is now part of the INSERM-UVSQ Endicap laboratory where his current work are related to gait analysis and assistive device design located in Garches Hospital. He is the president of the FFROB.
Stéphane Brunel PhD is associate professor at Bordeaux University. Specialized in knowledge management and digital using in learning. Primodial interest in pedagogical and didactical robotic system. President of Unformal Education League (30 000 members) in Gironde Dept of France. He has founded and managed the high school RoboTek competition from 2000 to 2010. He is in charge of developing the RoboCupJunior in the FFROB.
Jérôme Laplace founded Génération Robots in 2008. The European leader in the distribution of service robots for education, research and individuals, Génération Robots is also an integrator in professional service robotics, producing innovative robotic solutions in the fields of like nuclear, transportation or aeronautics. Jérôme Laplace also founded Humarobotics in 2016, a distributor of agile industrial robotics solutions including collaborative robots. Finally, Jérôme Laplace is since 2018, president of Cluster Aquitaine Robotics, an association bringing together all the private and public actors involved in robotics in Nouvelle Aquitaine.
After 5 years spent in various audit firms, Jean-François LAPLUME joined in 1983 Techexport, a multinational group specialised in worldwide distribution of IT and Image Processing sectors, as European Controller, successively based in Paris, Boston and London, while co-managing the French subsidiary.
Recruited in 1996 as Deputy Managing Director by Aquitaine Europe Communication (AEC), the Aquitaine IT development agency, he became General Manager in 2009 and founded an incubator dedicated to digital innovative projects, Auberge Numérique.
He developed the agency up to its fusion, in January 2018, with Unitec in order to form the main regional start-up developer and accelerator, specialized in IT, health & life sciences, and engineering sciences (photonics, chemistry, robotics,…) where he serves as General Secretary, in charge of administrative, legal, social and financial matters.
Grégoire Passault is Associate Professor at Bordeaux University, LaBRI, IUT. Graduated top of his year by the computer science engineering school of Bordeaux (ENSEIRB-MATMECA), he defended his PHD thesis on legged robots locomotion and is now associate professor at LaBRI (Bordeaux computer science laboratory). One of the main architects of the Sigmaban humanoid robots, he participated five times to the RoboCup in the kid-size league with the Rhoban team. He also designed low-cost robots for education, including holonomous and quadruped platform known as the Metabot project.
