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.

  • Zonotopic fault estimation filter design for discrete-time descriptor systems 

    Wang, Ye; Wang, Zhenhua; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (2017-07-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper considers actuator-fault estimation for discrete-time descriptor systems with unknown but bounded system disturbance and measurement noise. A zonotopic fault estimation filter is designed based on the analysis ...
  • Robust optimization based energy dispatch in smart grids considering simultaneously multiple uncertainties: load demands and energy prices

    A periodic nonlinear economic model predictive control (EMPC) with changing prediction horizon is proposed for the optimal management of water distribution networks (WDNs). The control model of the WDN is built by means ...
  • Word ordering and document adjacency for large loop closure detection in 2D laser maps 

    Deray, Jeremie; Solà Ortega, Joan; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Article
    Accés obert
    We address in this paper the problem of loop closure detection for laser-based simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) of very large areas. Consistent with the state of the art, the map is encoded as a graph of poses, ...
  • Kinodynamic planning on constraint manifolds 

    Bordalba Llaberia, Ricard; Porta Pleite, Josep Maria; Ros Giralt, Lluís (2017)
    Report de recerca
    Accés obert
    This report presents a motion planner for systems subject to kinematic and dynamic constraints. The former appear when kinematic loops are present in the system, such as in parallel manipulators, in robots that cooperate ...
  • ROS wrapper for real-time multi-person pose estimation with a single camera 

    Arduengo García, Miguel; Jorgensen, Steven Jens; Hambuchen, Kimberly; Sentis, Luis; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem (2017)
    Report de recerca
    Accés obert
    For robots to be deployable in human occupied environments, the robots must have human-awareness and generate human-aware behaviors and policies. OpenPose is a library for real-time multi-person keypoint detection. We have ...
  • Dual REPS: a generalization of relative entropy policy search exploiting bad experiences 

    Colomé Figueras, Adrià; Torras, Carme (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017-08-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Policy search (PS) algorithms are widely used for their simplicity and effectiveness in finding solutions for robotic problems. However, most current PS algorithms derive policies by statistically fitting the data from the ...

    Nassourou, M; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim; Ocampo-Martínez, Carlos (2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    The problem of energy dispatch in heterogeneous complex systems such as smart grids cannot be efficiently solved using classical control or ad-hoc methods. This paper proposes the application of Economic Model Predictive ...
