Miscellaneous Robotics

Our group deals with several other research topics ofoutside the main domains covered in the other pages of this site, such as vision assisted robotics and mobile robotics.

Mobile Robotics

Mobile robotics is a branch of robotics that deals with mechatronic systems capable of moving in the surrounding environment. Thus, mobile robots are not stationary but can change their spatial position during time. Intelligent navigation can be implemented through the use of AI. So, the robot is able to take decisions based on the evolution of the surrounding environment. Their fields of use are varied such as automation, space exploration or marine/submarine applications.

Vision-assisted robotics

Computer vision is an interdisciplinary scientific field that deals with how computers can gain a high-level understanding from digital images or videos. From the perspective of engineering, it seeks to understand and automate tasks that human visual system can do. More specifically, robot vision refers to the capability of a robot to visually perceive the environment and use this information for the execution of various tasks. This discipline covers a wide variety of fields: it can be used to detect and avoid obstacles during navigation, to recognize and grasp different shaped objects, or it can be used to ensure a high level of safety during a cooperation between robots and human operators.
