  • Between 2008 and 2010, he taught a master-level class on Traffic Telematics and ITS (Intelligent Transportation System) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).
  • Since joining EURECOM, he teaches classes in the field of vehicular wireless communication and networking.

My courses

  • EmSim / Fall 2018 - Emulation and simulation methodologies

    (Course for Post Master and International Masters students only).

    This module teaches the fundamentals of simulation and emulation methodologies providing guidance on how to design a performance evaluation campaign, set up a test scenario, select the appropriate models, level of granularity, metrics for statistical correctness, and discuss the differences between simulation and emulation platforms and how to use them for accurate performance evaluation of communications for ITS.

    Teaching and Learning Methods : Lectures and Lab sessions (group of 2 students)

    Course Policies :  Attendance to Lab session is mandatory.

  • MobMod / Fall 2018 - Mobility Modeling

    (Course for Post Master and International Master students only).

    The module teaches the state-of-the art of the modeling techniques for vehicular mobility. The objectives are first to describe the challenges of close-to-reality modeling of vehicular mobility, illustrate the impact of mobility on communication and networking, as well as the benefit of close-to-reality of vehicular mobility modeling to design efficient ITS applications.

  • MobWat / Spring 2019 - Wireless Access Technologies

    This module addresses the access methods in Wireless Local Access Networks (WLAN). The basic contention and management mechanisms are detailed. Current and emerging standards of WLAN toward 5G are also presented.

  • PlanIFR / Spring 2019 - Infrastructure Planning

    (Course for Post Master et International Master students only).

    • Intelligent transport systems require wireless communication infrastructure to provide the required connectivity to users and vehicles. Such connectivity is based on heterogeneous access technologies (LTE, WLAN, IEEE 802.11p) and on inter-vehicular communication or vehicular-to-infrastructure communication over single or multiple hops.
    • One key component remains to have a sufficient radio coverage provided by communication infrastructures, in particular for ITS applications requiring a global and/or large-scale connectivity, or to leverage the initial low penetration of the ITS communication technologies. Normal radio coverage may be typically provided by a cellular network, although one particularity of wireless networks for ITS is that a full and continuous coverage is neither required nor optimal, as a large majority of ITS applications are based on geo-localized services. Radio coverage, and as such, the deployment of communication infrastructure should be adapted to ITS applications requirements, and to the radio coverage and vehicular mobility contexts, with the aim of a joint user/operator satisfaction. An optimal distribution of communication infrastructure is indeed expected to play a critical role in the success of ITS applications.
    • The objective of this course is therefore to learn innovative methods and algorithms to optimize radio coverage for ITS (the user satisfaction) on the one hand, and on the other hand, to optimally dimension the size of the required communication infrastructure (the operator satisfaction) by minimizing them but distributing them in key locations with respects to ITS applications.

  • PlanTP / Spring 2019 - Transportation Planning

    (Course for Post Master  et  international Master students only).

    • The objective of wireless communications in ITS is to improve the occupancy of the road infrastructure, public, and private transportations. Notably, federating various transportation means in multi-modal transportation solutions is estimated to play a critical role to reduce traffic jams and commuting time in the upcoming years.
    • The major role of wireless communication is to provide and ease the exchange of the required fresher and more precise information to find the optimal selection of the transportation mean(s). It is therefore critical to understand the mechanisms behind public transportation planning (routes, time table, volumes), or private transportation planning (logistics, traffic, etc.), including their interactions, in order to evaluate how and where vehicular wireless communication could help to optimize them. The objective of this course is therefore to provide students with basic knowledge in transport planning, with a particular focus on dynamic methods and multi-modal transport modeling.

  • Stand / Fall 2018 - Standardization activities

    (Course for Post Master and International Masters students only).

    This module provides a global and coherent view of C-ITS standardization activities in major standard development organizations (SDOs) or industry consortia, such as the IEEE, the ETSI, the ISO, the IETF and the SAE. This module also illustrates the similarities and differences between different approaches in Europe, the US, and the rest of the world. This module finally details the standardization process related to different C-ITS technologies or information.

    Teaching and Learning Methods : Lectures, Case Studies and attendance to Standardization meetings

    Course Policies : Attendance to case studies and standardization meetings is mandatory.



  • TraffEEc / Spring 2019 - Emission and Traffic Efficiency

    (Course for Post Master ITS  and International Master students only).

    • Intelligent transport systems are expected to bring a positive impact on the environment. Yet, a specific design and evaluation methodology will be required, especially when considering vehicles dynamics on the generated pollution. One key aspect is the need for pollution and energy consumption models that will be able to represent the positive or negative impact of urban traffic on the environment.
    • In this course, we will present the divers methods and models available in the critical domains of pollutant emission models, noise models, and electric or fossil energy consumption models. We will illustrate their usage in conjunction with ITS solutions on typical use cases, such as dynamic navigation and electro-mobility.
