Nuevos avances en robótica: manos blandas, plasticidad y visión 3D Proyecto Prometeo patrocinado por la Conselleria de Innovación, Universidades, Ciencia y Sociedad Digital de la Generalidad Valenciana

Este proyecto aborda tres problemas fundamentales con inspiración biológica: la manipulación adaptable basada en manos robóticas blandas con rigidez variable, el diseño en robótica evolutiva inspirado en la plasticidad fenotípica, y la visión robótica tridimensional. Además, aplicaremos nuestros resultados en el contexto del desafío de Amazon Robotics para recoger objetos ordinarios y abordaremos dos nuevas aplicaciones piloto: la búsqueda visual en almacenes de venta on-line por medio de drones, y la identificación visual de comportamientos.

Robotic System for Picking Objects in Online Shopping Warehouses (RoboPicker)

RoboPicker addresses the problem of automating the picking process in online shopping warehouses. Specifically, we follow the model of, which leverages cutting-edge advances in technology and has recently deployed thousands of mobile robots from Kiva Systems, removing much of the walking and searching for items within a warehouse.

The Robot Programming Network

RPN (Robotic Programming Network) is an initiative to bring existing remote robot laboratories to a new dimension, by adding the flexibility and power of writing ROS code in an Internet browser and running it in the remote robot with a single click. This project is possible thanks to IEEE Robotics and Automation Society.

TRIDENT: Marine Robots and Dexterous Manipulation for Enabling Autonomous Underwater Multipurpose Intervention Missions

TRIDENT proposes a new methodology for multipurpose underwater intervention tasks with diverse potential applications like underwater archaeology,oceanography and offshore industries, and goes beyond present-day methods typically based on manned and / or purpose-built systems. Trident is based on new forms of cooperation between an Autonomous Surface Craft and an Intervention Autonomous Underwater Vehicle.
