  • Adaptive multi agent system for guiding groups of people in urban areas 

    Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sandoval Torres, Óscar; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Springer, 2011)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This article presents a new approach for guiding a group of people using an adaptive multi agent system. For the simulations of the group of people we use social forces, with theses forces human motion is controlled ...

  • Cooperative robot movements for guiding and regrouping people using cost function evaluation 

    Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The objective of this research is to optimize robots cooperative work and obtain the minimum displacement of humans in a guiding people mission, where some individuals can escape from the formation and must be regrouped ...
  • Cooperative robots in people guidance mission: DTM model validation and local optimization motion 

    Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2010)
    Lecture
    Open Access
    This work presents a novel approach for optimizing locally the work of cooperative robots and obtaining the minimum displacement of humans in a guiding people mission. This problem is addressed by introducing a “Discrete ...
  • Cooperative social robots to accompany groups of people 

    Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2012)
    Article
    Open Access
    This study proposes a new model for guiding people in urban settings using multiple robots that work cooperatively. More speci cally, this investigation describes the circumstances in which people might stray from the ...
  • Discrete time motion model for guiding people in urban areas using multiple robots 

    Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (IEEE Press. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We present a new model for people guidance in urban settings using several mobile robots, that overcomes the limitations of existing approaches, which are either tailored to tightly bounded environments, or based on ...
  • Guiding and regrouping people missions in urban areas using cooperative multi-robot task allocation 

    Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sandoval Torres, Óscar; Mirats Tur, Josep Maria; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
  • La influencia del efecto "Uncanny Valley" en el diseño de un robot social 

    Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    In this present work we propose which features and functionalities we should consider in the design of social robots according to the “Uncanny Valley” effect. This effect, described in the 70s, argues that when robots have ...
  • Local optimization of cooperative robot movements for guiding and regrouping people in a guiding mission 

    Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This article presents a novel approach for optimizing locally the work of cooperative robots and obtaining the minimum displacement of humans in a guiding people mission. Unlike other methods, we consider situations where ...
  • Model validation: robot behavior in people guidance mission using DTM model and estimation of human motion behavior 

    Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2010)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This paper describes the validation process of a simulation model that have been used to explore the new possibilities of interaction when humans are guided by teams of robots that work cooperatively in urban areas. The ...
  • Online human-assisted learning using random ferns 

    Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (2012)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    We present an Online Random Ferns (ORFs) classifier that progressively learns and builds enhanced models of object appearances. During the learning process, we allow the human intervention to assist the classifier and ...
  • Proactive behavior of an autonomous mobile robot for human-assisted learning 

    Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Villamizar Vergel, Michael Alejandro; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    During the last decade, there has been a growing interest in making autonomous social robots able to interact with people. However, there are still many open issues regarding the social capabilities that robots should have ...
  • Robot companion: a social-force based approach with human awareness-navigation in crowded environments 

    Ferrer Mínguez, Gonzalo; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Robots accompanying humans is one of the core capacities every service robot deployed in urban settings should have. We present a novel robot companion approach based on the so-called Social Force Model (SFM). A new model ...
