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.

  • Nonlinear model predictive control for aerial manipulation 

    Lunni, Dario; Santamaria Navarro, Àngel; Rossi, Roberto; Rocco, Paolo; Bascetta, Luca; Andrade-Cetto, Juan (2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    This paper presents a nonlinear model predictive controller to follow desired 3D trajectories with the end effector of an unmanned aerial manipulator (i.e., a multirotor with a serial arm attached). To the knowledge ...
  • A flexible hardware-in-the-loop architecture for UAVs 

    Lepej, Peter; Santamaria Navarro, Àngel; Solà, Joan (2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    As robotic technology matures, fully autonomous robots become a realistic possibility, but demand very complex solutions to be rapidly engineered. In order to be able to quickly set up a working ...
  • Advanced monitoring of an industrial process integrating several sources of information through a data warehouse 

    Sanz, E; Matey, J.L.; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç (2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    This paper presents a methodology and architecture for the advanced monitoring of an industrial process integrating several sources of information using a data warehouse (DW) that include as metadata datamart to cross ...
  • Fault detection and isolation in flat navigation canals 

    Segovia, Pablo; Blesa Izquierdo, Joaquim; Horvath, K; Rajaoarisoa, Lala H.; Nejjari Akhi-Elarab, Fatiha; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Duviella, Eric (2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Inland navigation networks are composed of several artificial canals that are characterized by no slope. These canals are particularly subject to resonance phenomena, which can create waves such that the navigation condition ...
  • Trajectory generation for unmanned aerial manipulators through quadratic programming 

    Rossi, Roberto; Santamaria Navarro, Àngel; Andrade-Cetto, Juan; Rocco, Paolo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017-04-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In this paper a trajectory generation approach using quadratic programming is described for aerial manipulation, i.e. for the control of an aerial vehicle equipped with a robot arm. The proposed approach ...
  • Efficient interactive decision-making framework for robotic applications 

    Agostini, Alejandro Gabriel; Torras, Carme; Woergoetter, Florentin (2017-06-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The inclusion of robots in our society is imminent, such as service robots. Robots are now capable of reliably manipulating objects in our daily lives but only when combined with artificial intelligence (AI) techniques for ...
  • Combining local-physical and global-statistical models for sequential deformable shape from motion 

    Agudo Martínez, Antonio; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (2017-04-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In this paper, we simultaneously estimate camera pose and non-rigid 3D shape from a monocular video, using a sequential solution that combines local and global representations. We model the object as an ensemble of particles, ...
  • Non-linear economic model predictive control of water distribution networks 

    Wang, Ye; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela (2017-08-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    This paper addresses a non-linear economic model predictive control (EMPC) strategy for water distribution networks (WDNs). A WDN could be considered as a non-linear system described by differential-algebraic equations ...
  • Zonotopic fault detection observer with H_ performance 

    Wang, Ye; Zhou, Meng; Puig Cayuela, Vicenç; Cembrano Gennari, Gabriela; Wang, Zhenhua (2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    This paper proposes a robust fault detection observer based on zonotopes for discrete-time uncertain systems with sensor faults and unknown but bounded uncertainties. The main advantage of this method is that the observer ...
  • Multi-modal fashion product retrieval 

    Rubio Romano, Antonio; Yu, Longlong; Simó Serra, Edgar; Moreno-Noguer, Francesc (2017)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés obert
    Finding a product in the fashion world can be a daunting task. Everyday, e-commerce sites are updating with thousands of images and their associated metadata (textual information), deepening the problem. In this paper, we ...
