The Institut de Robòtica i Informàtica Industrial was created in November 1995 as a Joint Research Institute of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) and the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC).

The Institute was created with three main objectives: a) to promote a multidisciplinary center where CSIC and UPC researchers from different fields can combine efforts to carry out research on robotics and applied informatics; b) to offer to the community an Institute for fundamental and pre‐industrial technological research, offering also scientific education through doctorate and postgraduate courses; and c) to promote a quality‐based center being competitive enough to join other partners to participate in local, national and European research programs.

  • Execution fault recovery in robot programming by demonstration using multiple models 

    Hoyos, Jose; Prieto, Flavio; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Torras, Carme (2016)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Deformable object (e.g., clothes) manipulation by a robot in interaction with a human being presents several interesting challenges. Due to texture and deformability, the object can get hooked in the human limbs. Moreover, ...
  • Combining semantic and geometric features for object class segmentation of indoor scenes 

    Husain, Syed Farzad; Schulz, Hannes; Dellen, Babette Karla Margarete; Torras, Carme; Behnke, Sven (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Scene understanding is a necessary prerequisite for robots acting autonomously in complex environments. Low-cost RGB-D cameras such as Microsoft Kinect enabled new methods for analyzing indoor scenes and are now ubiquitously ...
  • Sequential non-rigid structure from motion using physical priors 

    Agudo Martínez, Antonio; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc; Calvo, Begoña; Martinez Montiel, José Maria (2016-05-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    We propose a new approach to simultaneously recover camera pose and 3D shape of non-rigid and potentially extensible surfaces from a monocular image sequence. For this purpose, we make use of the Extended Kalman Filter ...
  • Incremental learning of skills in a task-parameterized Gaussian Mixture Model 

    Hoyos, Jose; Prieto, Flavio; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Torras, Carme (2016)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Programming by demonstration techniques facilitate the programming of robots. Some of them allow the generalization of tasks through parameters, although they require new training when trajectories different from the ones ...
  • Path planning for active tensegrity structures 

    Porta Pleite, Josep Maria; Hernádez Juan, Sergi (2016-01-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper presents a path planning method for actuated tensegrity structures with quasi-static motion. The valid configurations for such structures lay on an equilibrium manifold, which is implicitly defined by a set of ...
  • Human collaborative localization and mapping in indoor environments with non-continuous stereo 

    Guerra Paradas, Edmundo; Munguía Alcalá, Rodrigo Francisco; Bolea Monte, Yolanda; Grau Saldes, Antoni (2016-02-24)
    Article
    Accés obert
    A new approach to the monocular simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) problem is presented in this work. Data obtained from additional bearing-only sensors deployed as wearable devices is fully fused into an Extended ...
  • Uncertainty effect on leak localisation in a DMA 

    Pérez Magrané, Ramon; Cugueró Escofet, Josep; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim; Cugueró, Miquel Àngel; Sanz, Gerard (IEEE Press, 2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    The leak localisation methodologies based on data and models are affected by both uncertainties in the model and in the measurements. This uncertainty should be quantified so that its effect on the localisation methods ...
  • Fault-tolerant periodic economic model predictive control of differential-algebraic-equation systems 

    Wang, Ye; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (IEEE Press, 2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    This paper addresses a fault-tolerant periodic economic model predictive control (MPC) strategy for differential-algebraic-equation (DAE) systems. Fault tolerance evaluation of the proposed economic MPC strategy uses set ...
  • Guaranteed state estimation and fault detection based on zonotopes for differential-algebraic-equation systems 

    Wang, Ye; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela; Álamo, Teodoro (IEEE Press, 2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    This paper presents a set-membership approach based on zonotopes for differential-algebraic-equation (DAE) systems with unknown-but-bounded disturbances and noise, which can be subsequently used for guaranteed state ...
  • Leak localization in water distribution networks using model-based bayesian reasoning 

    Soldevila Coma, Adrià; Fernández Canti, Rosa M.; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim; Tornil Sin, Sebastián; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    This paper presents a new method for leak localization in Water Distribution Networks that uses a model-based approach combined with Bayesian reasoning. Probability density functions in model-based pressure residuals are ...
