Mobile robotics is one of the cornerstones of the MAPIR research. Our work includes (but is not limited to) a variety of fields like robot mapping and localization, robot task planning and world modelling, human-robot interaction, etc.
- Unmanned Aerial VehiclesAutonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are self-sufficient aerial robots equipped with sensors and an onboard computer to execute tasks such as reconnaissance flights.
- Localization & MappingWe have contributed in areas like robot localization, particle filtering applied to SLAM, scan matching and hybrid and metric representations with excellent results.
- Human-Robot InteractionRobots are increasingly present in modern human societies. This rises a number of specific issues related to the interaction between machines and persons. We have worked in several lines on this topic.
- Reactive NavigationWe address purely reactive methods that take into account the 3D robot shape, its nonholonomic constraints and different path models.
- Telepresence RoboticsTelepresence robots are teleoperated robotic systems that allow a user to virtually visit a remote place and interact with the environment through its sensorial and motor capabilities.
