Paticipation in the Amazon Robotics Challenge 2017

A team from the RobInLab has competed with robotics teams from around the world in the Amazon Robotics Challenge (ARC 2017) held from July 27 to 30 in Nagoya, Japan, reaching the tenth position. We consider participation to be a success, not only because of the relative position, but also because of the learning experience it has meant for the EMARO+ master's degree students who have participated and for the laboratory researchers themselves.

Our picking task:

Advanced Robotics Master thesis defense

We will have the presentations of two EMARO Master thesis:

Time: 12:00

Title: Multicopter-mounted System of Computer Vision for Stocktaking
Author: Ilia Vasilev
Place: Room TI-1113
Time: 15:30

Estimated duration: 1 hour.

Campus Cientificos 2017

Like last year, our group has participated in the Education Ministry initiative "Campus Cientificos", introducing a number of selected students to the field of robotics aas part of the project "MATEMATICAS + INFORMATICA: La suma de las matematicas y la informatica para encontrar soluciones".

Here we can see some photos of the activities.

 

 

"Sistemas Inteligentes" Students Firefighters Robots Final

Last friday was the final of the students competition of Firefighters Robots. Six teams formed by several students (3-4) of the subject "Sistemas Inteligentes" (Intelligent Systems) programmed a robot to move around a maze, find a fire (a small candle) and extinguish it.

We can see here a moment of the competition with Dr. Enric Cervera starting the countdown.

The final results were:

Bioloid: our new robots

We have recently received two Bioloid Mini robots and we have started to experiment with them, as can be seen in the video.
