The Lagadic group no longer exists. From Janaury, 1st 2018 most of the Lagadic people are now in the Rainbow group.

The Lagadic group : Visual servoing


Lagadic is an Inria research group located both at Inria Rennes Bretagne Atlantique and Inria Sophia-Antipolis Méditerranée. The Lagadic part in Rennes is also an Irisa group.

Our research mainly deals with robot vision, visual servoing, real time visual tracking and SLAM for applications in localization, manipulation, navigation, medical robotics and augmented reality.

To validate their researches, the team exploit robotic experimental platforms. Since many years, Lagadic develop and maintain also ViSP, an open source software under GPLv2 license.

2 February 2017
ViSP 3.0.1 released
11 october 2016
2e edition of the Handbook of Robotics

ViSP is used by Intel
