Autonomous Robots

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 Vehicles
    Autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are self-sufficient aerial robots equipped with sensors and an onboard computer to execute tasks such as reconnaissance flights.
  • Localization & Mapping
    We have contributed in areas like robot localization, particle filtering applied to SLAM, scan matching and hybrid and metric representations with excellent results.
  • Human-Robot Interaction
    Robots 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 Navigation
    We address purely reactive methods that take into account the 3D robot shape, its nonholonomic constraints and different path models.
  • Telepresence Robotics
    Telepresence 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.
