  • Aibo JukeBox : a robot dance interactive experience 

    Angulo Bahón, Cecilio; Comas-Fernandez, Joan; Pardo Ayala, Diego Esteban (2011-06)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents a human-robot interaction system based on the Aibo platform. This robot is both, complex and empathetic enough to generate a high level of interest from the user. The complete system is an interactive ...
  • Analyzing human gait and posture by combining feature selection and kernel methods 

    Samà Monsonís, Albert; Angulo Bahón, Cecilio; Pardo Ayala, Diego Esteban; Català Mallofré, Andreu; Cabestany Moncusí, Joan (2011-09)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper evaluates a set of computational algorithms for the automatic estimation of human postures and gait properties from signals provided by an inertial body sensor. The use of a single sensor device imposes ...
  • Building up child-robot relationship: from initial attraction towards long-term social engagement 

    Díaz Boladeras, Marta; Nuño Bermudez, Neus; Sàez Pons, Joan; Pardo Ayala, Diego Esteban; Angulo Bahón, Cecilio; Andrés, Amara (2011)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    To explore social bonds’ emergence with robots, a field study with 49 sixth grade scholars (aged 11-12 years) and 4 different robots was carried out at an elementary school. A subsequent laboratory experiment with 4 of ...
  • Dynamically consistent probabilistic model for robot motion learning 

    Pardo Ayala, Diego Esteban; Rozo Castañeda, Leonel; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Torras, Carme (2012)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This work presents a probabilistic model for learning robot tasks from human demonstrations using kinesthetic teaching. The difference with respect to previous works is that a complete state of the robot is used to obtain ...
  • Emerging behaviors by learning joint coordination in articulated mobile robots 

    Pardo Ayala, Diego Esteban; Angulo Bahón, Cecilio (Springer, 2007)

  • External force estimation during compliant robot manipulation 

    Colomé Figueras, Adrià; Pardo Ayala, Diego Esteban; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Torras, Carme (2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper presents a method to estimate external forces exerted on a manipulator, avoiding the use of a sensor. The method is based on task-oriented dynamics model learning and a robust disturbance state observer. The ...
  • External force estimation for textile grasp detection 

    Colomé Figueras, Adrià; Pardo Ayala, Diego Esteban; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Torras, Carme (2012)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Our current work on external force estimation without end-effector force sensor is resented.To verify if a grasp of a textile has been successful, the external wrench applied on the robot is computed online, with a state ...
  • Human - Humanoid Robot Interaction: The 20Q Game 

    Pardo Ayala, Diego Esteban; Franco Genís, Oscar; Sàez Pons, Joan; Andrés, Amara; Angulo Bahón, Cecilio (Springer, 2012)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This article introduces the development of a human-robot interaction’s system. The NAO humanoid robot has been programmed to play the popular 20 questions (20Q) game. The system includes modules for both, speech recognition ...
