We consider the robust estimation of the Pickands dependence function in the random covariate framework. Our estimator is based on local estimation with the minimum density power divergence criterion. We provide the main asymptotic properties, in particular the convergence of the stochastic process, correctly normalized, towards a tight centered Gaussian process. The finite sample performance of our estimator is evaluated with a simulation study involving both uncontaminated and contaminated samples. The method is illustrated on a dataset of air pollution measurements.
