Symposium of Robotics, Bioengineering, and Computer Vision (May’24)

Three researchers from our group participated in the Symposium of Robotics, Bioengineering, and Computer Vision, held in Badajoz last May. The team presented two significant contributions, showcasing part of our research in two primary areas. The first presentation focused on appearance-based visual localization, a technique that enhances the ability of robots to navigate and recognize their environment based on visual cues without the need to build and maintain a geometric map. This research is crucial for improving the autonomy and accuracy of robotic systems in various applications.

The second presentation delved into the field of artificial olfaction, particularly the localization of gas emissions using a mobile robot and a range sensor based on laser technology. This innovative approach aims to develop robots capable of detecting and pinpointing hazardous gas leaks, which is vital for safety and environmental monitoring. The approach presented delved into the detection and localization of methane emissions in outdoor environments with the assistance of a mobile robot to improve the efficiency in data collection, a research line with a promising future.

The symposium also served as a valuable platform for networking with other researchers from across Spain. The interactions and discussions facilitated potential collaborations, fostering the exchange of knowledge and innovative ideas, and strengthening the research community in these advanced technological fields.
