Challenge Mobilex – MOBILity in complEX environnements

In order to accelerate research and innovation on autonomous mobility of land vehicles in complex environments (damaged roads, presence of obstacles, etc.), the French National Research Agency (ANR) and the Defense Innovation Agency (AID) launch a co-funded call: the MOBILEX Challenge (MOBILity in Complicated Environments), in partnership with the French National Center for Space Studies (CNES) and the French Agency for Innovation in Transport (AIT).

The development of advanced piloting assistance, on board or remote in the form of an autopilot, to manage the trajectory of a land vehicle taking into account the complexity of its environment (slopes, unstructured roads, landslides, etc.), and its evolution (meteorological hazards), represents a crucial research challenge for the civil, military and space fields. Having such a level of assistance would not only relieve the pilots, but also free up cognitive and/or physical resources, whether for construction, fire-fighting or military vehicles for example. In this context, the MOBILEX Challenge aims at evaluating different technological solutions integrating all the functions and constraints to be taken into account to manage the local trajectory of a land vehicle in an autonomous way in a complex environment. More globally, it aims to advance research and innovation in this field.

The applicants are invited to take note of the conditions of eligibility which are provided in the call text.
