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.

  • Recovering pose and 3D deformable shape from multi-instance image ensembles 

    Agudo Martínez, Antonio; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (Springer, 2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    In recent years, there has been a growing interest on tackling the Non-Rigid Structure from Motion problem (NRSfM), where the shape of a deformable object and the pose of a moving camera are simultaneously estimated from ...
  • Un nuevo método cooperativo para encontrar personas en un entorno urbano con robots móviles 

    Goldhoorn, Alex; Garrell Zulueta, Anais; Alquézar Mancho, René; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Comité Español de Automática (CEA-IFAC), 2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Se presenta un nuevo método para localizar a personas en entornos urbanos usando robots móviles sociales que trabajan de manera cooperativa, el cual supera las limitaciones de enfoques ya existentes, que se adaptan a ...
  • Observation of the electrochemically active surface area in a proton exchange membrane fuel cell 

    Luna Pacho, Julio Alberto; Usai, Elio; Husar, Attila Peter; Serra, Maria (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    In this paper a methodology for the estimation of the Electrochemically active Surface Area (ECSA) of a Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) is developed. Specifically, the ECSA in the Cathode Catalyst Layer (CCL) ...
  • Planar PØP: feature-less pose estimation with applications in UAV localization 

    Amor Martinez, Adrian; Santamaria Navarro, Àngel; Herrero Cotarelo, Fernando; Ruiz, Alberto; Sanfeliu Cortés, Alberto (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    We present a featureless pose estimation method that, in contrast to current Perspective-n-Point (PnP) approaches, it does not require n point correspondences to obtain the camera pose, allowing for pose estimation from ...
  • Structured prediction with output embeddings for semantic image annotation 

    Quattoni, Ariadna Julieta; Ramisa Ayats, Arnau; Madhyastha, Pranava S.; Simo Serra, Edgar; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    We address the task of annotating images with semantic tuples. Solving this problem requires an algorithm able to deal with hundreds of classes for each argument of the tuple. In such contexts, data sparsity becomes a key ...
  • Quaternion kinematics for the error-state KF 

    Solà Ortega, Joan (2016)
    Report de recerca
    Accés obert
    A complete compendium of Quaternion formulas, with applications to Kalman filtering for visual-inertial navigation.

    Aquest projecte ha estat desenvolupat durant l'estada a l'empresa de primer de batxillerat. Va ser dut a terme al laboratori de Percepció i Manipulació de l'IRI (Institut de Robòtica i Informàtica Industrial) i proposat i ...
  • Personalization framework for adaptive robotic feeding assistance 

    Canal Camprodon, Gerard; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Torras, Carme (2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    The deployment of robots at home must involve robots with pre-defined skills and the capability of personalizing their behavior by non-expert users. A framework to tackle this personalization is presented and applied to ...
  • User evaluation of an interactive learning framework for single-arm and dual-arm robots 

    Jevtic, Aleksandar; Colomé Figueras, Adrià; Alenyà Ribas, Guillem; Torras, Carme (Springer, 2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Social robots are expected to adapt to their users and, like their human counterparts, learn from the interaction. In our previous work, we proposed an interactive learning framework that enables a user to intervene and ...
  • Periodic economic model predictive control with nonlinear-constraint relaxation for water distribution networks 

    Wang, Ye; Álamo, Teodoro; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    In this paper, a periodic economic model predictive control (EMPC) strategy with nonlinear algebraic constraint relaxations for water distribution networks (WDNs) is presented. A WDN is usually modeled by a series of ...
