Two laboratoy's students participated in CEABOT 2014, in which small humanoids robots had to complete different challenges.
At the end of the conference, we made an informal physical presentation of our baoratory as part of the SAB 2014 (http://sab2014.org/
Schoolchildren of the summer camp have visited our laboratory.
They are learning basic techniques to manage simple robots and they are acquiring general knowledge about robotics in the robotics subject which is included in the summer school.
Carlos Rubert and Xavier Felip, two of our members who appear in the photos, have explained some details about the robots we use in our laboratory. This is a great chance to motivate the youngest generations.

RobInLab researchers: Marco Antonelli and Carlos Rubert, have attended the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA). This conference was celebrated the first week of June in Hong Kong.
There, they have exposed their advancements on his research fields. Marco presented his work about Bayesian Multimodal Integration in a Robot Replicating Human Head and Eye Movements. Carlos presented his work centered in Characterization of Grasp Quality Measures for Evaluating Robotic Hands Prehension.
Former RobinLab member Beata Grzyb selected among the best seven -out of 38 candidates- for the 2014 Georges Giralt European PhD Award. The selected seven thesis passed to the second round of evaluations for the best thesis award. Beata has now a postdoctoral position at Plymouth University with a Marie Curie grant funded by the European Commission.
About 40 students from SES Benassal from IES Alfons XIII, Vall d'Alba came to the lab to learn a little about our research.
